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.

    Dr. Church, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Unversity, discusses the methods, technologies, and implications of achieving a map of human brain activity. Dr. Church was also involved in the Human Genome Project, and he expects the same level of achievement and accuracy in mapping brain activity. The idea for this was formally proposed by President Barak Obama during the State of the Union Address. (Once again, shake your own hand or pat yourself on the back if you voted for the right candidate in the last election.)

    My opinion: What neurons are active or quiet when you undergo a PEM episode, for example? Or have a breakdown from multiple chronic sensitivies? Or cannot sleep for weeks at a time? What neurons can be stimulated or manipulated to prevent these? Questions to be answered in this effort. This is why I'm optimistic about the future of CFS.
