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.

    Some recently mentioned remission of ME symptoms during pregnancy. Maybe this explains.

    After having been ill for a number of years, I felt amazing in my pregnancy!!! I never put on any weight and the baby fed off the fat reserves accumulated during my illness. I actually weighed less on delivery than I had before getting pregnant and gave birth to a healthy 3.7kg baby. I felt extremely energetic and got up to all sorts of things I hadn't been able to do in ages. However within hours of giving birth the party ended: I dislocated my pelvis in the delivery and picked up a hospital bug as well (pseudomonas infection). I was extremely ill for months afterwards.
