Recapping ME/CFS Awareness Day – #May12BlogBomb

May 12th is Awareness Day for ME, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Every year bloggers use this opportunity to express their views and to raise the profile of these often misunderstood and maligned conditions. A call was put out to bloggers to participate in a #May12BlogBomb.
The loose theme this year was “A Vision for the Future!”. Sally Burch, the organizer of #May12BlogBomb said, “In my view the aim of these posts is to reach out to the wider community and help them understand our lives, hopes and dreams.”
Patients from around the world participated in the awareness day event. There were over 70 blog posts! People shared their personal experiences, photos, and videos about living with ME. They also shared their hopes and thoughts on bringing more awareness to ME, Fibromyalgia, Lyme and MCS.
