California CFS & FMS Support Groups Directory
Last updated February 5, 2013

WHAT SHOULD GO WITHOUT SAYING MUST BE SAID: The individuals who run these support groups are themselves sick, often very sick. Meeting dates, time, and places change as the hosting site changes their policies and schedules relating to the provision of free meeting space for local support groups. Because some callers harrassed and annoyed the volunteer group leaders and their families, or called at totally inappropriate times of day or night, I have removed most of the phone numbers from these listings to protect the lives and limited energy of those who give of their severely restricted functional time to others.

For people with (and supporters of) CFIDS/ME. Our "newcomer's" meetings provide an opportunity to meet other CFIDS/FMS patients and informally share information and hugs. Our speaker's meetings bring a talented member of the community to you to discuss one of a variety of (hopefully) helpful perspectives in the management of CFIDS/FMS.

A regular support group meeting is held 6 times a year on Wednesdays evenings from 6-7 PM. We especially encourage newcomers to come to these meetings. These Newcomer/sharing meetings are held the 1st Wednesday of February, April, June, Aug, October and December. resentations by speakers on various topics are held several times a year on the afternoon of the second Saturday of a month. Speaker meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of January, March, May, September and November. Please call the hotline to confirm any meeting and to find out exact meeting times!
