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.

    This appears to be quite significant; as the article indicates, this also may have major implications for us.

    How do they go from finding damage to the pain interpreting nerve fibers in the brain to "physical proof that it's caused by damage to the brain"?

    The deterioration has happened because they have been stuck in a pain state for over a decade. It's good they have observable proof of physical symptoms but they don't understand the real root cause.

    Mycoplasma fermentans infection anyone?
    Brain damage sure, but that's not the root cause.
