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.

    A small achievement 3 years into ME (fairly speechless at the time with mobility and cognitive difficulties) I had to visit the Gastro Consultant following my Barium Test. As rushed he rushed in and out I dared to ask a question and cutting me short he said "you think too much". With restrained fury I replied "I do have some interest in my own health" The Senior Nurse attending glared at him on my behalf and I must say he left fairly chastened. And I must add useless though polyps were discovered.
