International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    yes, the CDC mentions 80% and Jason has one or more studies, one of which found 90%. Just a sec....

    Pretty sure that's (raw number [percent]). And refers to before having enrolled in the study.

    I could be wrong, haven't looked for it, but I seem to remember Dr. Klimas reporting that about 84% of ME/CFS sufferers have probably not been diagnosed.
