How can I keep in touch with the outside world while I am homebound?

October 18, 2013

There are many ways to keep in touch with the outside world! Watching the local news and reading the newspaper can help. If you have access to a computer, you can connect to an on-line service where there are several support groups for YPWCs . Make it a point to keep in contact with friends and relatives that live in your town by making phone calls or inviting them over for a quiet activity.

“CFIDS is not an excuse we use to stay home. We want to be in school, with our friends and planning our lives. CFIDS makes this impossible.”
