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.

  2. Great article Sproggle.
    It feels like the tide is turning... with documentaries and press finally seeming to take us seriously.

    Well done for posting.

    Thank you for posting that excellent article, Sproggle. Perhaps the severity of our illness is beginning to be taken seriously at last, although it will be a long road ahead.

    I heard only yesterday from a reliable source that the DWP still refuse to accept ME as a physical illness. Sympathetic medical reports are being sent back to examining medical practitioners to 'correct' if they are seen to be accepting the condition as organic.
