    The makers of Forgotten Plague are looking for people to commit to staging a screening of their film when it's released. They say it can be as little as a screening for 10 people in your own home to larger groups in the community. See link for more details

    "With our Media Kit and Event Planning Guide, we aim to equip individuals to stage at least 300 screenings of the film worldwide in 2014, changing the conversation one community at a time."

    Forgotten Plague has a brand new website, very posh:

    Hope we're getting close to the release but it might be a while yet...

    At the bottom of the page on the new website, it states,

    "Against great odds, he becomes a reporter and ventures to tell the story of his suffering and improbable recovery."

    Anybody know his recovery story?

    He did an AMA on Reddit a while back. He talks about his illness, recovery and treatment protocol in one of the comments.

    Does anyone know when this movie is being released? I can't seem to find a date anywhere.

    There's a lot of interesting info in the Reddit comments which I personally found a bit hard to get through, because of the layout. I tried to find a shorter overview of his story to read, so I thought I'd share for anyone who also has problems with large blocks of text: http://college.usatoday.com/2012/10/02/opinion-the-real-story-of-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/

    Maybe the most important bit in the Reddit comments was the part about his treatment protocol:
