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.

    Very interesting points that Dr Light makes in this short interview with Carole Head of Solve (poor sound quality): basically, because once you've got it the disease doesn't change much and (mostly) doesn't progress to the point where it kills you, it's a single, static target for research and more curable.

    Also says that we can take advantage of the 30-year start that research into other diseases have on us, by nicking their tools. :cool:

    And that his team have identified an integrated "fatigue system" and know what its components are. They believe it interacts with the cardiovascular system, GI system, brain and ANS - can investigate this and see which components are involved in causing the symptoms.



    Very encouraging little interview, published in May this year.

    Dr Light is giving a Solve webinar on Thursday, October 15 and I, for one, will be glued to it!
