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.

    Hi all! The more comments on the article's website, and the more social media shares (from the site) we get, the more The Hill will want to publish future articles on ME. This is the publication that people who work on Capitol Hill look at.

    @RivkaRivka, Thanks for such a well written, powerful article. I will leave a comment over the weekend. I agree that numerous comments attract a lot more views. So impressed you got this printed in thehill.com.

    Thank you also for the reminder in how we can help:

    I didn't know that the social media shares (from the site) would help like that, too. Done!
