Unrest on PBS

For those of you who are in the United States, Unrest will be coming to PBS on January 8th. This documentary is a glimpse inside one woman’s journey with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), a misunderstood, misdiagnosed, pervasive and insidious disease.  It is a love story.  It is a story of strength.  It is a story of despair.  It is a story about the failure of the medical system to take seriously millions of people who suffer from ME.  It is a story of success, how one woman has managed to shine light into a little seen world.  Unrest has been shortlisted as one of the top 15 documentaries for the Oscars.

Please take the time to watch this vital documentary and let others know about it. Perhaps if enough people begin to ask questions, we can increase awareness and funding for research. Perhaps those of us who are invisible to the general populace will become visible. Unrest is a story of an often bedridden and invisible community, built on the simple principle that, although you may not see us, we are still here.

Hear us.  See us.  Be part of the solution.

I am still here.

  1. Is it terrible that I kind of don’t want to watch it? I know it’s supposed to be amazing. I will prompt people I know to go see it. But it’s already my whole life, and I want to watch things that don’t remind me of that.

      Not terrible at all, I completely understand! It was difficult for me to watch but felt validating at the same time. The first time I watched with my husband. Even though he’s lived with my illness all these years and been wonderful and supportive, it significantly impacted how he viewed PEM, sound sensitivity, etc. Maybe watch with some loved ones when you’re up to it. It’s worth it for the illumination of family and friends of those of us whose lives are profoundly changed by ME/CFS.
