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.

    Sounds familiar. Except maybe not so innocent.

    I've not read the whole thing, but I want too... I can re-use a reply I just made to one of Dolphin's threads:

    Thanks. Too much interesting stuff to read at the mo.

    It does seem like exactly the sorts of problems we've complained about in CFS, and had dismissed as a reflection of patients failing to understand how mind and body interact, or a stigmatisation of mental health issues, are now beginning to be recognised as a serious problem within much of psychology. They just couldn't believe it when it came from CFS patients.

    The cognitive dissonance generated by acknowledging that we were right would rent the psychiatric heavens asunder. Gods would be falling all over the place.

    Can't have that.
