International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    Sasha, I just looked up Thing X, and guess what? The name is actually "Thing X"! o_O:)
    I don't understand what it's all about, but I don't think it's very big, and Facebook is massive.

    Bob - what, seriously?!! I just made it up! That's a bit freaky. Maybe it's a term whose time has come! :)

    lol, you made it up? :eek:

    (I thought maybe you just thought you were making it up, but had actually remembered it correctly!)

    So it's not the site you were thinking of then. I didn't think it looked very impressive.

    Yes, I really did make it up - as far as I know - I've got absolutely no memory of having heard it and that's fairly common for me to use language like that to describe an unknown (Mr X, etc.).

    I didn't check out the site - I'll never have seen it anyway - I'm clueless about this stuff and always a good 10 years behind.
