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.

    TimeWarner Hallmark HD Channel is showing the Golden Girls CFS episodes from 1989.
    It was an amazing effort to show the illness in Primetime.
    Of course, she had to get well to continue the show. But it was good . If you are up you may want to try and find it and tune in.

    I've seen that before, and agree that aside from her apparently never mentioning it again, they did a really good job overall. It does make me sad that not a lot has noticeably changed in the typical patient experience since 1989.

    Susan Harris, writer and producer for Golden Girls, has CFS. Wish more shows allowed characters with chronic illness.
