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.

    No new info here that we haven't already seen in the other pieces that have profiled Laura Hillenbrand in recent months - but it's in the NYT and in the health blog, and specifically about her CFS. An encouraging trend in the NYT's coverage of CFS, which seems to be getting more positive. Good to comment and share to encourage this trend!

    I just ran across this as well, while checking out the times site. This is the best, most sympathetic portrayal of Hillenbrand and CFS since her New Yorker article. Read this one-- I'll be forwarding it to my friends and family. Great idea to leave a positive comment as well,
