The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    If you have facebook account - make a small comment on these ME facebook pages where I posted about. Those are the ME groups with the most followers. The more comments and likes will have the posts the bigger chance is that other ME patients will see it and that they will see it on their walls (facebook works like this). It can also motivate other patients if they will see many comments

    Voted! 241(?) votes.

    Idea: Is it possible to @ all recently active members? Is there an automated way to do that? We could attract attention that way

    Sorry about the confusion in the other thread; I thought I saw a voting button but didn't use it as I was headed to bed. I will vote now!

    It is great the see the banner at the top of the page with the link to the voting page. :) You can't make it any easier than that. :D I hope a lot of member take advantage of it. :thumbsup:

    This is my first day of voting. I am behind on reading the forum. IIRC, which I hope I don't, we were in 43rd place when I voted.
