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've been dropping by the forum for updates all day...
    And I wondered why there weren't any...

    I've just realised I'm a day early! :confused:

    Ha! Ember! How funny! If a little embarrassing! :cool:

    I think there's a pattern forming here isn't there! :sleep:

    Maybe I should invest in a calender, and I should keep it next to my computer!!! :confused:

    :)

    Here's where you can view the coverage as a live video stream:

    Agenda:

    Roster:

    I've edited our coverage from day 1 to add some extra info and a summary at the end, plus captions for most of the screenshots. Probably easiest to read through in the larger window on the forum page here:

    Thanks to everybody for the coverage - I watched quite a bit of the feed but find it difficult to take in verbal stuff when it's fast so the soundbite summaries were extremely helpful.

    I really really want to watch it, but my dial up connection cant handle the live stream so I cant hear it (Im getting it about one word every 30 seconds) and picture arent moving. Is there anywhere we can just listen to it without the video? maybe my computer could handle that.

    You won't be able to watch CFSAC meeting on iPad because they're livestreaming using Adobe Flash Player and that won't run on an iPad (longstanding dispute between Apple and Adobe).
