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.

Why is Australia so behind the rest of the world in tests and immune modulators??

    Does anyone know if Dr Deed has any patients in Sth Australia? Im wondering if I ever managed to have a phone appointment with him if he knew of a good doctor over here who would work with what he says or if he'd know where I could get tests done here eg tilt table testing (which I need so a doctor will believe I have an issue with POTS)

    Hi Francelle, did I say it wrong?:worried: I am a bit befuddled atm, but I guess it does sound odd. The intelligence test was a valid test carried out by a psychologist. Sadly, over the course of the test I got worse and in the end could not complete it. I have 2 degrees, yet the test showed my IQ was below the median percentile. This would be a standard response from most people with me/cfs.

    Despite the presentation of spect scans etc, it was the only evidence that was really accepted as independent and validation of what I was saying.

    In the end I was quite happy to be diagnosed by anyone, as long as I was able to be put on disability. I am way past the point of being concerned about whether other people think I have a psychological illness or not. But it would be sweet if it could be proved that it was a retrovirus. Won't give me back the last 20 yrs though.:D
