International May 12th Awareness Day is observed by dying hair blue or dressing up in blue.[5] Since 2016, the #MillionsMissing protests for ME/CFS have taken place every May, with the main event held on May 12th.[6] Film screenings are usually held for films about ME/CFS, including Voices from the Shadows, Forgotten Plague, or Unrest.[7][8] Public landmarks are lit up in color for International May 12th Awareness Day, typically using blue for ME and purple for fibromyalgia.[9][10]


In 2006 a British charity created Severe ME Awareness Day on August 8th as a day of remembrance and understanding for those who died from or with ME.[11] August 8th was chosen because it is the birthday of Sophia Mirza, who was believed to be the first British person to have chronic fatigue syndrome listed as a cause of death.[12]

At the website this morning, I saw a notice “sold put” This Fibro Webinar did not actually have a cost — most likely they reached the limit for the number of attenders.

I forgot
Thanks for the reminder.
I was diagnosed with CFS/FMS 32 years ago, after seeing an afternoon program back home. I was told had very severe form. I've only had remission for a couple years--never have flares. It's just there all the time. I haven't left the house since November 1st.
