    30-minute interview originally broadcast live, with questions from the online audience, possibly (I haven't watched it yet):

    I knew this was going on, but it was just when I was getting dinner. Probably would have been wise to prioritise asking questions there.

    I keep being busy when I want to be able to do stuff on-line at a set time. I've now had too much of my life devoid of time-management.

    This is tough to watch, like all of Jen's interviews. I'm not sure I'd do so well if I had to repeat over and over my answer to the question, "so, it was a diagnosis of conversion disorder at first, right? Which is hysteria" and having to explain the loss of identity that comes with ME over... and over... and over again without beginning to sound like a robot.

    Thank you Jen, for persisting. Just continuing to respond articulately during an interview this long would be challenging for anyone with ME.

    And to add to your wise comments, Jen remains upbeat, positive, and compassionate while she is traveling to attend film screenings and interviews.
