      Yea!!! Way to go!!! I agree with the other sentiments expressed here - it's been 24 years since I first became ill and I cannot believe the insensitivity and misunderstanding we still face daily, not to mention the lack of more funding for research, etc. THANK YOU for giving us HOPE that this film CAN make a difference! xoxoxo

      I hope the world sees this as proof that despite our exhaustion, despite our lack of visibility, we are a powerful group who desperately wants answers. I believe in this documentary and the movement and community it has created. Thank you all.
