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.

    Interesting, but some things are unclear from the article. How exactly does the PFC suppress the SNS? Norepinephrine, the major mediator of the SNS innervates the PFC and increases behavioral control over subcortical structures. So this seems counterintuitive to me. Acetylcholine is the major mediator of the ANS, but does not innervate the PFC.
