By definition, ME/CFS can cause significant impairment in function which can impede a patient’s ability to work, go to school, or even care for themselves. As many as 75% of adults cannot work and require some type of disability services. Students and those who can work often need accommodations to enable those activities. People with ME/CFS may benefit from mobility devices, handicap parking stickers, and home health aides, even if these accommodations are not required at all times.
