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 need an op on my eye and have been turned away by the hospital twice as they are twitchy about my reactions to medications including anaesthetics. I returned for the op again today.........and was about to climb on the operation table .........but the doctor clearly was reluctant to perform the procedure. When the doctor left, the nurse whispered the words 'fear of liability'..............perhaps they fear I would sue if I crashed as a result of the anaesthetic. The upshot was that I was again turned away. I was then asked if they can give me lidocane hydrocloride as a nerve block and they want the decision to be mine. So, I wondered if anyone knew whether this was likely to cause someone with ME problems, please?

    Thanks.
