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.

    No dodgy BPS trials currently in progress which they expect to be promoted in a certain manner?

    I am sure you all know how the ME sufferer's mind is inclined to wander.

    With this thread I have never been able to get beyond wondering what exactly "turkeybasting" is a euphemism for. With supporters like that who needs critics?

    Well don't google "turkeybasting" then whatever you do. @Chrisb is obviously in prankster mode this morning.

    Some filth our delicate minds are unable to process no doubt. Who knows what damage it could do?

    It's just basting a turkey, isn't it. Isn't it?

    Can it be so simple? It might take years of analysis to reveal the deep subliminal symbolism of the term.
