#MILLIONS written on the toenails, #MISSING on the fingernails!

The traditional blue for ME/CFS gave way to a sea of red, black and white as we came together on Friday 7 May, to celebrate the global event #MillionsMissing. This year we added another dimension to the occasion, with people joining the house party online, via Zoom.

As always, it was a pleasure to enjoy an afternoon with people who understand. Now we get to recover from the payback.

One creative person went all out and coloured her nails red, with the letters #M I S S I N G on her fingernails and #M I L L I O N S on her toenails. Unlike many people with ME/CFS, she is fortunate to not be sensitive to the chemicals involved in nail art.

Another clever person made #MM earrings for us to wear.

The #MM house party kick-starts our week of activities to mark this year’s international awareness for ME/CFS.

#MillionsMissing, an #MEAction campaign started in 2016, is one of many global awareness activities held during May.

This year, one of the #MillionsMissing opportunities that you might choose to participate in, is to post your ME/CFS story, photo or video to social media, with the hashtag, #MillionsMissing and the tag, @meactnet. Their timeline for 2021 is in the image below.

#MEAction also maintains a list of global #MillionsMissing events that are happening in May, 2021.
