Sorry 'bout the title. It's Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Awareness Day again. I haven't done anything this year to raise awareness, except I've tried to sum up Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia in 140 characters on Twitter.
There's no easy way to say this - it's a real tongue twister... here goes:
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Syndrome.
ME and CFS are roughly the same thing, while FMS has different systems - you'd never know if someone had it unless they told you. You might guess something was wrong with them, but you may not notice anything is up with them at all.
Just when I start to think that maybe we'll cope, and things couldn't get any worse then they were before, turns out I'm wrong.
