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.

    After the recent continuous heavy rainfall here in Sydney, I have Bracken Fern springing up around my house. After doing some reading I find that just living in a location where Bracken Fern grows can increase your risk of dying from gastric adenocarcinoma! :eek:

    How odd. I ate fiddlehead fern at a wild edible plant class. Wonder if that's a problem too? Oh, well. Too late now.
