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.

    Hah, I like the phrase she uses to encompass Lyme and/or co-infections: "tick-sick" :D

    But she makes a good point, regarding the uselessness of adhering to rather conservative IDSA standards, and the opposite extreme of following a rigid and harsher protocol which is too much for some people.

    Though I think the one major mistake she made was working full time when she was too ill for it. Medical leave is for sick people, and they should at least attempt to make use of it :p
