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.

    @Alvin2 no need to apologise, I'm very thankful for you advice, especially since you've been there. And you haven't made me feel bad at all, it's the process itself that is scary and difficult! I was surprised to realise how much I was avoiding dealing with this (even aside from the legal help aspect), and I find the same apprehensive emotions come up whenever dealing with doctor stuff. It would be nice if we could all just deal with the actual symptoms of the disease without all the crazy emotions that come with chronic invisible illness too. At least recognising that these emotions are going on is the first step to dealing with them!
