International ME/CFS Awareness Day 2012

Today is International CFS/ME Awareness Day. Whether you have ME/CFS or have a sick friend or family member, here are some simple things you can do to help educate the world and help promote research for CFS, even if you can't leave your house:

  1. About CFIDS by the CFIDS Association
  2. An Overview of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Phoenix Rising
  3. The CDC's information on CFS
  4. My own article, CFS: An Invisible Illness, published last fall on Lively Woman
  • You and your friends and family can also donate money to help fund badly-needed CFS research. I know the economy has been rough lately, but you could always do what we've done and just switch some of your charitable giving from other organizations to the CFIDS Association or other ME/CFS organization of your choice.
  • You can also donate to CFS research without spending any extra money by using a shopping donation site or links like:
  • CFIDS Association's Shop and Give links
  • You can even earn money for CFS research when you use a search engine:
Happy Awareness Day!  Help to spread the word!
