“Voices from the Shadows”

You can watch this video for free on Vimeo.

“Voices from the Shadows” shows the brave and sometimes heartrending stories of five ME patients and their carers, along with input from Dr Nigel Speight, Prof Leonard Jason and Prof Malcolm Hooper. It was filmed and edited between 2009 and 2011 by the brother and mother of an ME patient in the UK. The film shows the devastating consequences that occur when patients are disbelieved and the illness is misunderstood. Severe and lasting relapse occurs when patients are given inappropriate psychological or behavioural management: management that ignores the reality of this physical illness and the severe relapse or exacerbation of symptoms that can be caused by increased physical or mental activity, over exposure to stimuli and by further infections.

I Remember Me

You can watch this video on Youtube.

“I Remember Me” is the first full-length documentary to explore the controversial and mysterious history of chronic fatigue syndrome, an illness that, according to the CDC, is now forty times greater in prevalence than previously estimated. Once dismissed as Yuppie Flu, this mysterious syndrome, for which there is not yet a universally acknowledged cause or cure, has prompted fierce debate within the medical community.

“Invisible, the Movie”

Available on Amazon.

INVISIBLE gives voice to a select group of Vermonters who are gravely ill, and until now, have been out of sight. You will hear first person accounts from your Vermont neighbors as they talk about living with ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFIDS and Fibromyalgia diseases with a thousand names and no known cause or cure. You will hear the devastating impact this illness wields, not only for those who suffer the symptoms, but for those who are left trying to understand what their loved ones are experiencing. This is a film for millions of people around the globe from your Vermont neighbors around the corner…tenacious Vermont neighbors who struggle against unimaginable odds to make their voices heard. They are just like us…except they got sick… …and they are tired of being INVISIBLE.

Mind the Abyss

You can watch this video on Youtube.

“My experience with M.E. may not be precisely identical to that of anyone else in terms of the sequence, nature and severity of the events — however, I believe it will be familiar to many people. Although my symptoms were “severe,” many with M.E. experience an intensity of impairment that is considerably worse. I would hardly have thought that possible at the time I became ill.”
