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.

    There was a demonstration in Mariestad in Sweden today :) A very successful one!

    17 members from RME (Riksföreningen för ME-patienter, the Swedish ME Association) took part, and it lasted about 4.5(!) hours. They handed out about 100 leaflets, and many great conversations were had :)

    It was the first time for something like this, and I'm massively impressed by how well they managed to organise things in such a super short time, get so many people to join, and even produce very professional looking flyers etc. Great work, well done! :thumbsup: :hug:

    There's an article in the paper about this too, please see below.

    They are all very happy with how well it went :)

    Do they plan to do this again on May 25 as well to support the Millions Missing Campaign?

    Great to see a good turn out.

    I don't know, but I don't think that's very likely. Some of these people are bedridden and/or quite ill, so it will probably take them quite a while to recover after this...
