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,

    Just out: A Ms. magazine piece on my ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) activism. Its on their Ms.com blog front page.
    http://msmagazine.com/blog/blog/2011/06/02/rivka-solomon-acts-up-chronic-fatigue-be-damned/

    If there are a lot of comments on the piece, it'll look like a "hot" issue. That might prompt a bigger story on ME/CFS in the hard copy magazine, which would be great, as Ms. has a big loyal readership. So please comment on the article, if you feel able. And feel free to forward this to others.

    Warmly,
    Rivka

    I can't believe what you accomplish from your bed! I feel like such a slacker! I posted a comment, and I agree that a print article would be amazing.
