Massachusetts CFIDS/ME & FM Association
Our mission is to support individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFIDS or ME) and fibromyalgia and to provide educational resources so they may better cope with these conditions. We will do this through open discussion, group support and occasional guest speakers who work in the field.
We aim to:
*Develop a safe, nonjudgmental support network between members so they may connect and offer support to each other.
*Foster empathy, understanding and a positive outlook.
*Offer a space in which members can share their perspectives and experiences.
*Expose members to a variety of educational resources.
1. Opening circle to check in briefly with each member. Please be brief to allow each member the time to speak.
2.Discussion and group interaction.
4.Q and A
5.Closing circle and time to socialize.
We will invite members of the healthcare and pain care community to speak about various therapies and approaches to fibromyalgia and CFIDS. Please provide us with your feedback regarding the areas of healthcare and pain care that most interest you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
