    Jen lives large from her bed. She's the director of Unrest, a documentary about ME that premiered at Sundance 2017. http://fb.com/unrestfilm http://unrest.film

    Interview with ms. Brea starts at 1 minutes and 30 seconds. She was interviewed on danish national television, DR2.

    I haven't had the mental capacity to translate the rest from Danish to English. If anyone here is keen to do it, you can find instructions on how to do it under the video.

    Jen Brea is a hero. She can put this disease into words with so much dignity and can frame it in a way that I wish I were able to do in my own life. I'd pay in order to have access to "Unrest" now, so that I could share it with people in my life, that they might begin to understand. Alas, I understand that "Independent Lens" with PBS has purchased it and will air it next year. Still...I wish I had access. I need her voice now.

    I agree, Jen is a hero. Her advocacy is so much appreciated. I just hope that she is managing OK. I can't wait for UNREST to be released and for it to gain the attention of the general public and medical profession and media.
