Wow, very kind of you to think of others and help this way, Kit Cat! Bravo!

I have something to add for Canadians re Free Supplements. Our healthcare is covered by the province for many things, but a lot of people don't know the province of Ontario will cover the cost of supplements for certain mitochondrial diseases in Ontario. The phone number and email of the gov't program office is included in the link. Also,

For dentistry, which is not covered by our healthcare, some colleges & universities will offer discounted and/or free dental care and/or procedures.

Hi, really great set of resources here. I wondered if anyone has any tips for being broke and medicated for ME/CFS in the UK or the rest of Europe? Several European countries have free health care systems, but as we all know ME/CFS isn't widely recognised and many people go to private doctors which can end up a financial black hole... any suggestions would be welcome!

Hi natalie,

Thank you for your comment. I'm sorry to say I don't know anything about Europe. I hope someone else might come by with some ideas...
