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.

    The above forum is run by a charity called Thyroid UK. If you contact the charity or write a post on the forum asking for the email address, they keep lists of doctors - GPs and consultants, private and NHS - who have been recommended by someone at some point in time, and they might email the list to you. But there are no guarantees with any doctors - the rules change and the doctors change their practice and treatment along with it e.g. you won't find many doctors willing to prescribe T3 any more. It never was popular with doctors, and now most of them won't touch it with a bargepole.
