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.

    As both EBV has been implicated in ME/CFS by some, and ME/CFS has been (mis-)diagnosed as MS or atypical MS in the history, the one sentence I highlighted really sticked out for me.

    My money with regards to MS is on Terry Wahls we'll see, maybe it is the interaction between bad nutrition and an EBV infection.

    When one sees how much research money is spent on MS, how slowly the knowledge progresses there and how difficult it is to pin down the actual culprit, I think I prepare myself for the possibility that Lipkin will not find a smoking gun. We'll see, we'll see.

    (And I find the describing of EBV in the last paragraph as if it were a sentient being quite misleading.)

    Yup. The MS EBV discussion is interesting.

    REALLY! Not to me and I'm sure a lot of other folks. It's funny how research into many different diseases, disorders and illnesses suggest an involvement with EBV.
