The 12th May is International ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. During the month of May bloggers are joining together to help raise awareness and on this blog I’m collating a central list of all their posts.

Their approaches and subjects may vary but the one thing they have in common is wanting to get a message to you.

We have some wonderful posts for you to read …

A quick thank you to everyone who has blogged and tweeted for ME/CFS Awareness and who has done their bit to spread the word.

Our list of blogger’s posts for ME/CFS has grown since last year and I’m so proud.  Twitter had lots of ME/CFS Awareness activity with events happening across the internet and around the world.

The week has taken a bit of a toll on me personally, as I’m sure it has for others, so forgive me that I haven’t managed to get around to read and comment on all the posts.  I will be catching up with you just as soon as I’m able.

If you have blogged for ME/CFS Awareness Day/Week and you’re not on the list of 2009 participants please let me know.  Still a day or two left of Awareness Week so it’s not too late to blog.

For all who have read and written – thank you.
