ME Awareness Day Event, May 12

Great poster promoting 'All Fall Down' event, especially the wording: 'Symptoms fluctuate from day to day, hour to hour. Sufferers may look well and be able to function for a short time, but consequently have to 'pay' afterwards, with days, weeks or longer, housebound or bedbound, witnessed only by close family'. This aftermath is known as post-exertional  malaise (PEM), recently described as PENE (post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion), the hallmark symptom of classic ME, which many diagnosed with 'CFS', simply do not have.
