    The movie is called “Unrest.” The unrest of the title is one of the many symptoms of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, often expressed as ME/CFS. It is at one level a touching love story and at another, where its real purpose lies, a cry to be heard.

    This mysterious, debilitating disease affects maybe 1 million Americans and has no cure, is hard to diagnose, and there is no therapy other than attempts to alleviate the worst symptoms. It is a disease of the immune system. To get it is to have normal life confiscated and replaced with bare existence, pain, confusion and fatigue, which is not ameliorated by sleep, hence the unrest.

    Rest can be read at link

    800 odd followers on both Twitter and Facebook so not a big reach on social media maybe more subscribers to the site

    Thank you, @MErmaid :)

    Since I have an account at Washington Post (subscribe to them in addition to my local paper) I decided to write a comment.

    Not exactly a review, or article, but here's a link to the text of an email received today from Jennifer Brea. It provides an update regarding the success of the #Time for Unrest campaign since it was launched three months ago.

    http://mailchi.mp/unrest/looking-back-at-an-incredible-year

    A few highlights:
    • 521 screenings in over 22 countries, 229 interviews & reviews, 15% of the British Parliament and tens of millions reached
    • Last week in Atlanta, a screening in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control was the first continuing medical education event they've ever held in a movie theater.
    The full impact campaign report is available here:

    A very interesting reading about the impact of Unrest on someone who previously belittled "cfs":
