When you have ME/CFS it can be hard enough to manage basic daily tasks let alone finding ways to be an activist for fair treatment, research and so on of your illness.
International ME/CFS Awareness Day is on 12 May 2008. If you’re short on energy or ideas on how to do your bit why not join me in blogging on (or around) that date about ME/CFS.
Blog for ME/CFS
To join in:
- Leave a comment on this post to tell me you’re going to try to blog for ME/CFS Awareness with a link to your blog
- Blog on (or around) 12th May 2008 about ME/CFS. Anything you like – blog about classic symptoms, what life is like with mild, moderate or severe ME, attitudes of other people to your illness (and you), the challenges you face, the joys you have despite being chronically ill. Anything that will raise awareness – even if it’s just a link to a site that tells people more about the illness
- Leave a comment once you’ve blogged so I can list your post (I’ll compile a list here and you’ll have even more chances for people to find your blog)
FULL 2008 BLOG POST ARCHIVE HERE and at the end of this post.
Whether you are ill, in remission, now well, a carer, a health professional, a friend, colleague or family member of someone with ME/CFS you can blog to raise awareness. If you’re diagnosis is CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), M.E. (Mylagic Encephalomyelitis/Encephalopathy), PVFS (Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome), CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue and Immune Disorder Syndrome), FMS, Fibromyalgia, MCSD (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity), or you think you have one of these I know you have something to say. May 12th is also International Fibromyalgia Day!
