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.

    I can vouch for the fact that Bohemian has a very pronounced nystagmus and his doctors have frustratingly ignored it, although one wrote in his medical notes that it was the result of a 'delusion' . I read this myself. In whose minds was this a delusion? I am at a loss to understand how such an obvious nystagmus that suggests neurological damage can be delusional on the part of the patient. Could the doctor have meant that the persons who observed it (doctors and me amongst others and, of course, the author of the notes) are the ones experiencing the delusion?

    I guess I had better make an appointment with a psychiatrist as I must be clearly delusional to believe that I have observed such pronounced nystagmus in Bohemian's eyes.:bang-head::whistle::ill:

    Why do doctors get away with writing such works of irrational fiction about their patients?:mad:

    Is there any way of getting a second opinion?
