Please Note Members: Our Group is not only for ME/CFS but for Fibromyalgia also. This Group covers a lot of interrelated issues, some of us have several.

Some of you may have heard about this lady during the past month, Sarah Ramsey - "Woman with a Mystery Illness" Apparently it is worth a listen to, and also Kim Hill refers back to the end of the interview to her earlier interview with Prof Ron Davies.

Our Treasurer Rex Nowland advises that there have been a number of donations to our Group Bank Account, this is appreciated for the Groups future advancement.
There will be Koha boxes at some of the meetings even a gold coin is appreciated.

Some people do not have Facebook nor are on Neighbourly, there are some Great Websites available for all of us to peruse. If you have any favourites, please let me know. Plus also look at www.anzmes.org.nz... It is continually updated with current information.

Take care all of you in this cold weather, be safe. Best health vibes to all.
