Coordinator of the Tweed Coast

CFS/ME/FMS Support Group Inc.

Australia 2012-2017

As a retired teacher with a bachelor of science, I have been the enthusiastic coordinator of the Tweed Coast CFS/ME/FMS Support Group for the past 6 years, during which time I have intensively researched this condition.  

I have written articles for the group to discuss and these have now turned into a 'book', which I long to share with anyone who has this condition or who is trying to help a loved one affected by it.
