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.

"First ever study of 'moral distress' among nurses in burn unit" (not directly relevant to much)

    I just happened to see this by chance.

    There is no direct relevance to ME/CFS but I thought the concept of "moral distress"/that it had a name was somewhat interesting:
    I also thought it was interesting that an intervention that was supposed to help, actually resulted in worse scores (although at follow-up there was no difference). Non-pharmacological interventions shouldn't be assumed to help - they can sometimes make things worse (possibly not the best example, but an example of sorts).

    Interesting even if not entirely relevant to ME.
    It does go to show that the more aware you are of the exact nature of the moral distress and its causes the higher the level of distress experienced. That can be relevant to everyone in one form or another.
