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.

    Hi @BurnA have just got round to listening to this. It is brilliant, such clear rational thinking, concentrating on the facts.
    At times he seemed a bit worn out, probably the jet-lag and many talks.

    Thanks again for doing this. Am looking fwd to hearing his pre-conference dinner speech on the DVD.

    Thanks @MEMum

    David had just landed from his flight from San Francisco and was exhausted. He slept for half an hour on my couch and I had to wake him up to do the interview.


    There was so much on my mind during the interview, from cameras, microphones and knowing David only had a short time, that i didnt really take in what he was saying, at the time.

    It was only when I watched the interview back did I realise how articulate and clear thinking he was, he answered each question in full detail without having to pause for breath at times. And he wasn't rambling, it was a case of knowing exactly what to say.

    As you say David knows the subject inside out. Very impressed . He can respreaent me anytime. I'm tongue tied at about sentence 5 even on a subject I know well. Some days am even saying the wrong words in the first sentence ( but almost the right ones - it's really funny sometimes).
    How did he end up on your couch ? Great questions and filming btw

    Agreed. The steely calm factually incisive approach is usually most effective with us Brits.

    Wouldn't it be great though, if there was no need for it next year.

    Well, assuming you pay taxes. I suspect many of us are non-tax-payers as we don't earn enough.

    Chances are good that we are all paying tax as some form of goods and services or value added tax.

    VAT does not count for gift-aid in the UK.

    I believe this hasn’t been posted on PR yet.

    David Tuller is launching a new crowdfunding campaign to raise enough funds to keep writing for another year!

    Let’s help him to help us!

    Not much talk here?
    Is there another threead ? Right now he has reached 2/3rds of his goal but there's only 2 weeks to go and there's 500 less donors than last year. I think most of those 500 would like to contribute again if they knew the campaign was running. Is everyone remember to share on social media and remind those in your facebook ME groups?
