Thank you Kyla!
Those are good points, it does seem a bit overwhelming to have to recruit too many people individually!
This is very useful advice!
Very clever idea to get a guest speaker.
Some topics and themes that come up in the ME documentary, Forgotten Plague:
I'm working on a press release for the screenings of Forgotten Plague which will go out to national and some local media outlets. I decided I would watch it for a 3rd time to try to get some inspiration.
In case it is of interest to anybody, I've listed below points or themes that are mentioned in the film.
- sometimes it has a sudden onset and people can pinpoint exactly when they became ill
- There can be disbelief which may be due to the invisible nature of the condition
- People can struggle to get a diagnosis
- It can feel that your entire life has been stolen from you
- Often lose the ability to work
- Often struggle with education
- Covers the history of the illness
- Covers some of the symptoms including light sensitivity
- Mentions how some people can be severely affected including need a wheelchair and also so very severely affected (Whitney Dafoe). Mentions how some people can spend most of today lying down
- Mentions Ampligen
- How the illness can often be long-term
- How it can prevent people getting married or damage relationships. Or that a person will too ill to have children
-Highlights how some patients were active before the illness
- Highlights some research that is being done
- Highlights how it can affect one's ability to have a social life. One can be stuck at home a lot.
- Includes a radiologist (i.e. at former doctor who is a patient)
- Highlights how there has been a lack of research
- Highlights how the name Chronic Fatigue Syndrome trivialises the suffering of the condition.
