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.

    My comment .. of appreciation.

    Dear David Tuller, on behalf of my sister, who has suffered for 26+ years with this hideous disease, we cannot thank you enough. From your earlier articles we always knew you ‘got it’ and showed a lot of promise if you’d just keep writing. You’ve exceeded our expectations… you are approaching, if not already there, hero status! Thank you so much!

    I just added a comment, with a link to the new petition to the HHS:

    http://my.meaction.net/petitions/call-for-cdc-and-ahrq-to-investigate-pace

    If anyone else posts, I hope they'll mention it.

    Be aware that this comments section removes all your paragraph breaks and faces the reader with a wall of text. So keep it short, or no one will read it! I'd have posted less if I'd known.

    So refreshing to see a new mood especially among reporters and scientists.
