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.

    BBC Ouch! is a chatty disability focused programme/podcast and the current episode is a chronic illness "takeover" by pwme Catherine Hale of our Chronic Illness Inclusion Project and Natasha Lipman of Spoonie Pyjama Party.

    Hopefully it will be useful for the wider disability community to understand our day to day circumstances a bit better.

    Catherine can be found at: @octoberpoppy or @chronicinclude on Twitter (this is sometimes me instead), and the project is www.inclusionproject.org.uk

    Natasha is @natashalipman on Twitter and http://spooniepyjamaparty.com/
