October is Disability Awareness Month

This is a good opportunity to write letters to the editor at your local publications, and contact the health reporters at your local TV/radio stations to make them aware of (a) Disability Awareness Month, (b) how disabling something with the silly name of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be.
I generally equate it to MS in terms of symptoms/severity and mention that "in every other English-speaking country, CFS is known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" -- those two factors tend to get us more respect.
