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.

    Can someone point me to some studies or info from Montoya, Lerner or anyone else who is successfully using Valcyte to treat infections?

    I saw and ID doc just want to show him what is going on outside what he learned. Yes I know it won't matter but I'd like to show him I'm not talking out of my butt. Lol.

    Thanks
