favorite this post Seeking Information About Any CFS Groups in Lake County (Somewhere Around the Lake) hide this posting unhide

Most of us with this illness have our hands full just trying to get through the day, let alone take on the responsibility for a group. And where groups do exist, it's often some community outreach thing next to the furnace room in a hospital basement, or a handy way for an incipient LCSW to make a few bucks.
I'm hoping to find a group of others who are themselves dealing with this specific issue, and who value the ability to be balanced and rational on their good days. CFS necessitates an informed and intelligent approach, one that mitigates, rather than promotes, anxiety and misinformation.
Those of us who have been diagnosed with CFS, or who have become fully confirmed otherwise that it affects them (a positive diagnosis can take many years), are well aware how little understood our condition is by those who do not suffer from it. Research has shown that CFS is a vicious viral disorder, yet there are still medical professionals out there who call us crazy.
There is strength in numbers. If a group of like-minded people exist in Lake County, I'd like to know. I live in the Jago Bay Area and my vehicles are old; I prefer not to drive a half hour (or more) through the mountains, but around the general vicinity of the Lake is comfortable.
