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.

    Pity he didn't do more research. Quoting the AfME definition, not mentioning PEM and saying that a moderate sufferer can lead a relatively active life makes me wonder how accurate his portrayal of ME is going to be.

    They all go to AfME.

    I'd be interested to find out how they choose AfME for their info.

    I know that AfME show up on google near the top and with an add -- it may simple be that some money (as usual) needs to be raised to promote a more patient friendly source of info.

    Another thing I'd like to point out about a lot of the media around ME is that few talk about how severe the cognitive symptoms can be. If I had the energy level of this person I still could not function because my ability to focus/concentrate/think clearly is severely limited.
