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.

    This article is a good read about XMRV and other retroviruses and the diseases they may cause or do cause:

    Allergy Shots

    That's a very interesting, and scary article Teejkay.

    I had allergy shots for 20 years and it makes me wonder what was in the serum. I had shots for cats, dogs, horses etc. and I assume the serum contained fluids (protein) from these animals. This was back in the 1960's so I am sure the serum wasn't synthetically produced at that time. Is the serum live, or dead.

    Also, when I was young I couldn't get a tetanus shots because the serum came from horses and I was extremely allergic to horses. I understand that the horse serum is no longer used.

    What would happen if the allergy serum came from a cat with feline leukemia?

    Another point....I remember having allergy testing conducted where they scratch your skin with an allergin to see if you get a reaction. I member at the age of 6 getting over 200 scratches done (they had to use my arms and llegs as well as my back).

    Does anyone know what is in the allergy serum?

    Scary stuff

    This would make more sense in how humans acquired a mouse related retrovirus, or a monkey virus.....though vaccination. The polio vacine too has been implicated in possible contamination issues. Sorry I dont have a source for that...came from a book I read, The Virus Within, which talks about HHV6 research. (2000).

    It's all very intriguing that this could be what's been going on.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Liberty, that is frightening. Wouldn't it be weird too, if some of us got CFS from a cat scratch? The possibilities are endless really. We're learning so much more now than ever about retroviruses.

    INTERESTING in that autism is a condition frequently associated with vaccinations.
