    In a nutshell, CFSAC, the US government advisory committee that provided recommendations for action on issues related to ME, was disbanded by HHS with no warning or discussion. The explanation was that its mission had been accomplished. Ridiculous. Please tweet if you can, even if you can't post a picture. Hashtags are #MissionNotAccomplishedHHS, SecAzar and @HHSGov.

    Thank you for posting, @Esther12!

    I thought of taking it from bed, but I'm able to stand today, and I wanted to represent the spectrum of illness. Beyond being too tired to brush down my flyaways this is how I present in public.

    The response continues to be amazing online! At this point, if they're going to be moved I have to think they will be. Please continue to add your own tweets and Facebook posts and contact your Congressional rep if you live in the US. It's pretty easy, everything is already filled in for you.

    I was waiting for it, too, and yes: the most famous MISSION ACCOMPLISHED meme was utilized.
