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 listened to that BBC clip on ME and 2 things struck me.
    The person mentioned in the clip, Oliver, is 20 (male).----> Im 20 (male)
    The person mentioned in the clip, Oliver, had ME since 2009-----> I had this illness since 2009
    I want to meet Oliver.

    the only thing I really dislike about the clip is when the interviewer, Jennie Murray, says "do they (CFS-ME patients) grow out of it"
    this is not a phase in life. we cant just grow out of it. very poor choice of words there.

    Also they only focus on the narrow treatment of Exercise and CBT, never do they talk about anti-virals, research in the US, or anything else.
    So i rate this clip 5/10
