Friday, May 12, 2006 is CFIDS and Fibromyalgia National Awareness Day. I wanted to attend the Lobby Day on Capital Hill next week, but I am not up to it. But even those of us who are not able to attend can still get the word out! Here’s how…
This morning I sent out press releases to all of the newspapers within a 50 mile radius of my home. I talked about National Awareness Day, the CDC criteria for CFIDS, gave my story and how CFIDS and FM have affected my life and the lives of my family.
I am hoping to get a good response and hope to hear from others who have these illnesses as well.
If anyone would like to read my story, please email me (use the Contact Me form) and I can email it to you. It will give you an idea of what to write.
If each one of us who has these illnesses is just able to do a small part, we will get one step closer to a cure!
