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.

    I read somewhere a very clever, but very simple thing folk should say to us:-
    "How aren't you?"
    then we can launch into a lovely response of; "Wonderful, top of the world!".

    but oh, my heart leapt at the suggestion a friend might bring me a cooked meal!

    It won't happen, of course; all of my friends who would do that for me, live far too far away.
