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.

    Funny you should mention it, the young woman who started CFS Selfies says in this video
    That her face swells up, too, and that the project will help people to compare notes on such things.

    She got sick when she was 10 and is now 16.

    It's a 19 minute video.

    I don't think my looks change that much from good day to bad day.

    Several times people have told me that I'm looking great when I'm feeling like death warmed over. And I've had other days where I'm feeling okay, relatively speaking, and people tell me that I'm looking very tired or pale or something.

    So I don't think this photo thing would work for me.

    But if it is helping others to raise awareness of ME then that's great!
