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.

Dr. DeMierlier Annoucement: H2S

    As many of you know, Dr. Kenny DeMierlier held a press conference on May 28, 2009 where he announced that he believes that CFS is the result of toxicity from excess buildup of hydrogen sufide (H2S).

    DeMierlier's company, Protea biopharma is marketing an inexpensive test to measure H2S load in urine output.

    The CFIDS Association recently published some critical commentary of DeMierlier's work.

    Two good blogs (from me actually) plus lots of interesting comments including one person who suffered from H2S poisoning on this subject and several Doctor's comments can be found here.

    An interview with Dr. Alan Logan on the subject is coming up.

    I read the blogs, can't pretend to have taken it all in, as my elevator still does not go all the way to the top though it's better than it used to be.

    Pretty interesting reading though, both your blogs and all the comments. I also believe that the gut is probably central in some way. And I agree with the mention that the desperately ill are often somehow left out. They are at home, in a quiet room, cannot deal with company, being around people because of the severity of their symptoms. Don't know what to do for them but they are on my mind all the time.

    Those of us who are more high-functioning, here on the net, in contact with others, reading research, doing research ... we manage. But they, the invisible ill, do not. I was one of them at one time. It is a terrible predicament.

    Just my thougts, such as they are, and I am sadly aware they don't do much good. They don't fix a thing.

    I read some comments of Dr. Logan's. He sounds like an interesting guy. Looking forward to more.
