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 gave away most of my old CFIDS Chronicles (old magazine of the CFIDS Association of America) recently**. I made a copy of the following and thought I'd highlight it as I thought if I don't, the info might be lost.

    * I have over 200 Lever arch files of stuff relating to ME so lots of stuff eventually gets thrown out as I only have so much space

    ** MCS=Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

    Thanks. I have a meeting Monday and were needing info to show MCS is an issue with ME/CFS (my states disability service dont believe ME/CFS causes a lot of the issues I have), so this info you have just given is going to be very handy for me.

    I'm surprised that survey didn't list things to raise Phase II liver detox, which has far more logic and promise to be helpful than many of the things they did list.

    I don't think it provides strong evidence, as it is based on self-reporting. Also, if you look at the respondent profile at the end, the difference between the proportion who have ME and those who don't is not very great.

    I was interested to discover recently that I have genetic variations that affect the body's ability to detoxify itself.
