    In Part 1 (2:50), Shiela MacVikar says, “Jennifer has chronic fatigue syndrome, a severe form of myalgic encephalomyeletis.” Oh well...I'm sure that Jen presented her diagnosis the other way around. Part 2 doesn't miss a beat! :thumbsup:

    In the full article Nicole Grether writes, "After more than a year of repeated illnesses, infections and doctors not knowing what she had, Brea was finally diagnosed with a severe form of myalgic encephalomyelitis, better known as CFS." Does she mean 'myalgic encephalomyelitis, a severe form of CFS?'

    While it's a pity that Canary is still a long way off, we must keep in mind that it's being made by a PWME who is very sick indeed. We must be grateful that she's able and willing to do this at all. I'm in constant awe of what she's managing to achieve from her bed. I think she's amazing!

    And it will be better for these two films not to be coming out at the same time so that we can give each the boost it needs individually and make the most of the benefits that each will bring.
