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.

    I'm in the process of getting a ME diagnosis, although I've had it for years. It's really important to me that I find material to explain ME to those who are closest to me, primarily my 2 kids in their twenties, who still don't understand the nature and severity of my illness.

    I'm putting together a playlist, and I'm looking for videos from the scientific & medical communities featuring doctors or scientists that ideally:

    provide education about ME
    give a picture of what it's like (eg. orthostatic intolerance - inability to wait in lines, etc)
    what the impact is on one's life, advocate for those with ME.
    Are not so dry that a viewer would get bored after 2 minutes.

    I hope this is not to tall of an order! :D

    Thanks
