      Thank you for providing an interview describing this horrible illness. I have forwarded the clip to my state representatives. I hope they watch. It is appalling there has not been more funding.

      Thank you so much, Jen! This was a very well written piece of television. It is amazing to see, that the media finally takes the issue of this terrible illness seriously. And thank you for your extraordinary courage. To show yourself as weak and vulnerable as you are, must be very hard.

      Great that the media is finally covering ME/CFS in a responsible way and that is a BIG thanks to you guys!! Online support groups have been following the documentary and its media progress closely.

      Great job, Jen and Al Jazeera! While brief, the segment showed that the disease isn't "just in your head" and is truly devastating to daily life. I can't thank you enough for your willingness to speak out and lead this effort to draw attention from the medical community and others to recognize "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" (which, unfortunately, is easier to say than "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis").
