Welcome To The Autoimmune Disease Support Group! HAPPY 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF GROUP!

We are honored to have helped 16,771 people with this website since it's inception in 2013, and over 1,000 seats at the table were taken through face-to-face group meetings since it's first meeting November of 2009! 

Living with an Autoimmune Disease (or Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFIDS/ME) can be debilitating. It is a disease with flare-ups and remissions, but for many of us, the relentless fatigue, horrible muscle and joint pain, swelling, brain-fog, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, hair loss, rashes, (and on and on) can become a daily battle that lasts for years and years with no end in sight. Many feel that no one "gets it" or understands what they are going through! It can be very isolating. But here, they find they are not alone!

The Autoimmune Disease Support Group is 100% VOLUNTEER run. We can only keep our doors open through donations by good and generous people like yourself.

Our annual cost of operation at this time is approximately $1,200 per year.  So far this Thanksgiving Campaign we have raised a total of $130 of that $1,200 goal and the genorosity keeps coming!!!  Our hope is to exceed the annual expenses so that we can focus on marketing to get the message out to the people who need us most.

If you are one of the people who this group has touched in some way, or someone you know suffers with a chronic illness, won't you please consider a $5 donation through the PAYPAL link below so that we can continue giving support and information for another year? And please share this page through Facebook / social media to help us reach the people who need to find us. Many, many thanks!

Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy and safe, Thanksgiving and holiday season!
