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.

    Most of my time spent reading is in a reclining position with an iPad. I am sure the position I use to read is not optimal for preventing muscle strain, but this position is used out of necessary. Perhaps some clever individual will come up with a lightweight, inexpensive gadget for iPads/tablets that could address this issue. Maybe it already exists? I imagine a smal weighted stand with a flexible hose like attachment that could bend, raise and lower the iPad to a perfect viewing angle for your eyes, neck and shoulders wherever this portable device may be used. It would be great if it could also be used with a cell phone.

    Edit - So far I have found tablet stands that can clip onto a desk or headboard or other pieces of furniture, but I am thinking of a weighed stand that can sit on top of a bed, on a couch or low on the floor (weighted bottom of stand would be short and compact). Maybe the stand could have two options that could screw off and on - weighted bottom or a clip. I imagine that the gooseneck flexible hose would be retractable to allow maximum flexibility for height and angle adjustments and make it easy to transport or store.
