There is a day in May called CFS Day, and the CFDIS association has some suggestions as to how to increase awareness of the day and the illness. One of those is to distribute free pamphlets about the illness. If you go to their website: CFIDS.org and go to the link on the left that says free brochures, it will go to a page that has a link to educational materials and also one called, introducing CFS. The one for educational materials is for getting mass quantities, the other one will go to a "shopping" page (they are free, though) and it has a bunch of different brochures that are available. Though I haven't yet ordered these, I would imagine that they are accurate information, bc the CFIDS association is not a money motivated organization. They actually care about us and about helping. Anyway, I am going to get some of these and see about putting them in the library, doctors' offices, etc. and I thought that I'd let people on here know about it, bc if a lot of us do this, it could make a difference. If you don't feel up to bringing this to your library, etc, maybe even just share it with some friends and family and maybe ask them to help spread the word. Even if you only share it with a couple of people that would help.
