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.

    It's been sometime since I last frequented PR, and after just hearing PR's ME/CFS presentation, I was compelled to say I am highly impressed. A huge well done and let's hope we are heard!

    I think the entire thing is taped and will appear online in time, about four hours worth. All the official slides will also appear online, or so we are told. I really want to hear the Dr Enlander comment.

    I think the Phoenix Rising team did a great job. Its hard to cover complex issues in only a few minutes. Fortunately the main themes were repeated again and again by other speakers. I think the IOM panel might have got a message or two.

    The cookie-cutter thank yous and thank you for the slides, and your presentation is helpful, sounded a bit disingenuous after the first few, especially after a speaker who said the best thing they could do is resign.

    Well that was magnanimous of them! Or maybe they just weren't listening. ;)

    All kidding aside, if they are actually taking their job seriously, they probably are glad to hear the whole gamut of thinking. I would be, if I were in their shoes. Not that I'd want to be in their shoes. :eek:
