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.

    Doesn't seem to specify what you're committing to by taking part.

    Thanks @Sushi

    as @sarah darwins notes the recruitment page is not great, indeed I don't really think it is ethical, it has no info on what they are asking us to do, no info on privacy etc no info on conflicts of interest, it does not even name the researchers.

    But it is a test I cannot otherwise afford and I would be interested in seeing if it showed any similarities between people on @Hip's anxiety protocol.

    P.S. I should note that ubiome has answeres to how they deal a lot of this stuff https://register.ubiome.com/images/forms/consents_combined.pdf and the faq page, but not all of it.

    Yep, it is not a great page. It also doesn't say for sure that you will be given your results or any interpretation if they do send you your results.

    well it does say you will get the results when you click through to http://ubiome.com/pages/buynow

    they also say elsewhere that they do not provide and interpretation of the results (I cannot remember if it was on the consent form or the faq page).

    Is there still an offer of a free test?

    I already received mine but I've a friend who's interested and I can't seem to find the link and/or promocode to get the free test.
