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 saw this on CNN and thought it might be interesting for people in the US (and maybe abroad?) that haven't been able to complete a degree due our fluctuating physical and cognitive limitations: http://schoolsofthought.blogs.cnn.c...pace-at-school-without-boundaries/?hpt=hp_bn1

    The only drawback I could see in the article is that they only offer degrees in business, IT, teacher education, and health care. And the flat rate per term is more useful for people that can handle a full time class load.

    Thanks for posting this Valentijn. Hopefully, with schooling becoming so distance oriented, more possibilities will become available, and better ones. Now it seems their "cred" isn't always the best or their costs are absurd, but I sure would like to be able to pursue further ed at some point and have the option of an actual credential for all I've been studying!
