Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Just a quick update to let you know that starting next month the multi award-winning UNDER OUR SKIN will be airing on many PBS stations across the country, and every day more and more stations are programming the film.

    We're asking you to check to see if the film is scheduled to show in your area. If your local PBS station has not scheduled the film, please contact them and ask them to show it. Many of the stations that are broadscasting UNDER OUR SKIN agreed to schedule it after receiving a handful of calls from viewers in the community. And if you are willing
    to help spread the word in your area about an upcoming broadcast, please be sure to mention that to your PBS affiliate so they will know there is local support for the film.

    Thank you. With your help, we look forward to a successful kickoff of the TV broadcast of UNDER OUR SKIN during Lyme Disease Awareness Month.

    It's about chronic Lyme, and the politics affecting the research and health policies about it. I watched it last week; it's very good. It's now available on On Demand, which is where I saw it.

    Here's an interesting column about how one Infectious Disease doctor in Minnesota just got this film pulled from PBS there. The position of the IDSA (Infectious Disease Society of America) is that chronic Lyme doesn't exist and that all Lyme cases can be cured with short-term antibiotics. This film talks about chronic Lyme, and includes a segment about the investigation launched by the Attorney General of Connecticut into the conflicts of interest of the IDSA doctors who wrote the treatment guidelines.

    So if the IDSA doctors are now targeting the film, it may or may not be coming to a PBS station near you.
