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.

    That's one of the things that are so hard to sort out with this illness. We seem to react differently to treatments. It's pretty much a guessing game and you don't really know until you tried something if it's going to work for you.

    Anti-depressants never worked for me either- usually made me worse.
    For example the drug Xyrem helps many patients with their insomnia and gives them quality sleep where they wake up feeling refreshed. When I went on it, I had such a bad reaction - it nearly killed me.

    I feel your frustration. Being ill for 13 years is terrible! Do you have a doctor who understands what you are going through?
