Hi Bella,
I'm in Calgary!  I don't have any resources to offer but is your family doctor helping you to find a good rheumatologist?  Pain Specialists are good for us to see too. If I hear of anyone in your area I'll let you know.

Donnaeil has a good point - Seattle isn't that far away.  Could you travel this far?   Anyways, here is a link I found:
It was a CFS/Fibro Dr who found my Lyme.  There is also a Fatigue and Fibro Center here too.
Lyme, anxitey, depression, chronic C. Pnuemoniae

Since your in Vancouver may I suggest a visit to the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine it is a training center for Naturopathic Medicne. My cousin who has the same thing I have steered me in their direction. I must say it has helped a little. They are located in New Westminster and here's their link.  If your on disability with a limited income you can get treatment quiet cheap.   Remember tell them you have a limited income. 

DX: IBS 00, +ANA 05, Depression 06, MCTD & Sjogren's 07, GER 08, NO Sjogren's 09, Fibro and all over tendonitis?????  
Life is what you make of it.  Just something I try to remind myself every day.
