This is a non-post post to say that for ME Awareness Day this year I’m not writing a long essay explaining what you need to know. I’m resting after (presumed) coronavirus and demonstrating the need to listen to what your body says you need to not do.
Unfortunately we are expecting a surge of new ME patients triggered by COVID-19. I hope #MillionsMissing 2020 convinces people that convalescence and rest is important.
This is the #MEAction UK video
Please contribute in some way to the entirely virtual #MillionsMissing event (see this toolkit ) even if it’s just one retweet or share. Interacting with a popular post from another account is an effective technique to boost a message, in terms of Twitter and Facebook algorithm preferences. For the same reason, do not interact at all with disinformation or messaging you disagree with.
Tomorrow is the 200th Anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. Here is a post I wrote about her and ME.
If you are left unfulfilled by this post, this is another previous ME Awareness Day post from me.
