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.

    I am reluctant to venture whether this article struck me as biased or revisionist, or not. (It does.)

    I would hope the prospect of a new OspA vaccine, waiting in the wings, had little to do with the article's existence. (Personally, I suspect it has at least a tiny bit to do with it.)

    The copy is pretty much a good indicator. Authors are human and sometimes they manipulate even when they should not. Usually, they try to hide that, or at least take a stab at nuance.

    I couldn't find much nuance in this piece, :)

    If I wanted to go about promoting a new vaccine without proclaiming my efforts as PR, I might consider approaching it from the vantage of an ostensibly disinterested review...
