CFS and College

I am a full time college student who has attended community college for the past four years; yes four. I have struggled with fibromyalgia through it all but have succeeded and was recently accepted into a prestigious mathematics and physics program at a university. The problem is that I was just diagnosed with CFS about a month or two ago and even though I know how to deal with fibro and school I am not sure how to deal with CFS and school. I want to continue because I don't want to give up after all of my hard work, but I am not sure how to go about it. I already talked with the university and their disabilities program is going to accommodate me but does anyone have any suggestions about what accommodations might help me because I have no idea. They have a van service that will take me from class to class so that I don't have to wear out walking across campus but can anyone think of anything else? The advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I am having a similar problem with high school and i think its great you arnt giving up it takes a lot of motavation for me not to drop out. but what helps me with school is to go less hours because if i go to many hours i am much worst for the next two days. this might take longer to graduate but you could have a little bit more of a normal experiance, to be able to hang out with your friends and stuff. i hope this helps and i will be praying for you.
