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.

    (1) For some time now, BPS has been the dominant model only in SOME countries.

    (2) It's not BPS, but the unhelpful and dangerous clinical guidelines and disability policies, which BPS is used to justify, that have led to disagreement between doctors and patients.

    (3) "What is particularly salutary is the absence of any advance in therapy, so that they recommend..." I'm assuming there is a typo here, otherwise the whole sentence is completely incoherent.

    (4) Instead of the caveat that CBT might NOT be helpful in individual cases, they should have said that it MIGHT be helpful, but ONLY in a relatively small percentage of cases.

    Aside from (1)-(4), a great letter! :rolleyes:
