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.

    Please, anyone who is in that area, take your lounger and help them. You can lay down if you need to. Heck, that might even get the message across better. If you can't spend more than a couple of hours there, do that. Find out best time. This is what we need, make our illness visible. Wear your pajamas and don't comb your hair and no make up. Show people what this illness is.

    All you have to do is educate one person, one nurse and you have won a battle.

    We can't keep complaining that nothing gets done if we aren't willing to do anything. If you are able, please help this effort.
