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.

    This popped up on my Twitter timeline.

    A useful way to deal with PACE & CBT/GET sympathisers?

    Maybe its brain fog, or maybe just plain old oridnary stupidity, but I don't get it. :oops:

    It's just advocating the 4-year olds tactic of repeating the argument in a silly voice.
    Which is probably not in fact useful.

    Anger, frustration and persuasive fact based arguments are not mutually exclusive.

    Yes, it's daft & stupid but it made me laugh.

    Came from a RT from JK Rowling who is trolled pretty relentlessly.

    In the end you're not going to change somebody's mind on a social argument, the most you can do is make them think and there are different ways of doing that.
