Precis kollat en sjukt berörande dokumentär på Netflix om sjukdomen ME /cfs / kroniskt trötthetssyndrom . Man blir mörkrädd över hur illa det är med kunskap & forskning och hur det förstör aktiva framgångsrika människors liv . För det var sjukt vanligt .
Mycket tänkvärt . Alla dessa fördomar . Det är mer vanligt än MS .. liknande symptom som ”utmattning ”men så sjukt mycket värre i stort sett förlamande, för dem drabbade . #unrest #dokumentär #cfs #jenniferbrea #filmtips #EM #cfs #kronisktrötthetssyndrom

Måste rekommendera denna filmen/dokumentären av en sjuk kvinna med ME.En film som alla borde se för att uppskatta livet som frisk och att sprida information om denna vidriga sjukdom😢 #unrest#me #filmtips#cfsme#unrestmovie #unrestfilm#jenniferbrea#mecfs#netfilx#documentary

Litt personlig 🙈 Jeg har akkurat sett Unrest, som er en dokumentarfilm om ME. Jeg vil anbefale alle som kjenner noen med ME å se den (ligger på Netflix), så kanskje man skjønner bedre hvorfor en ME-syk kan virke frisk det ene øyeblikket for så å "forsvinne" i dager, uker.. Til og med år.. Og kanskje man skjønner bedre hvor desperat man blir etter å bli frisk(ere) og hvor syk man faktisk kan bli, og at det er langt mer enn bare å være sliten.. Jeg har hatt ME siden 2010, og jeg har vært så syk som de sykeste i filmen.. Jeg har ikke lyst å skrive så mye om det (🙈), men ville rette fokus på en forferdelig sykdom. Se den og be andre se den 🙏 💙 Takk 💙

تابعت هذا الفيلم الوثائقي أمس وانا مسافرة،
يتكلم عن متلازمة التعب المزمن مرض غريب ماله علاج
جداً حبيت صاحبة الفيلم ومثابرتها علشان تلاقي الحل
لمرضها وتواصلت عالمياً مع أشخاص في مثل حالتها و أطباء عن طريق الانترنت "حزنتني وبكتني في البداية بعدين اعطتني أمل بعزيمتها القوية"

The second I heard this had gone up on netflix i got it up and watched it, i then actually ended up watching it twice that day, once in the morning my myself and once in the afternoon with my mum and my grandma cause i wanted to show them and i wanted to see it again.
This film is AMAZING. M.E./CFS is one of the things which is on the list of possible causes for whats been going on with my physical health recently (at this point what the hell is going on is still a massive question mark)!
This film highlights such massive issues that need to be addressed.
Massive reccomendation to anyone and everyone to watch this documentary!
Even without my recent physical health problems i think i would of found this film really heart wrenching in the emotional times but the fact i saw it while going through a lot of similar symptoms meant it was just a whole level more close for me.
It was amazing how jennifer explained how people with ME/CFS often go on with debilitating symptoms but no one notices it because when they are out and about they can be fine but then they can completely exhausted and housebound or even bed-bound for the next few days just becuase they went out and did 'normal people things' for like just a couple of hours!
Please, if you have the time just give it a watch, it explains so much that i can't put into words but perfectly applies to what is going on with my physical health at the moment.
Its also promotes awareness for ME, attempts to break the stigma around it AND throws light on things like patients with ME being involuntarily institutionalised simply for having ME.

That feeling when i showed my mom Unrest last night and it opened up a 3 hour conversation that i never even could dream would have happened. Its been really hard dealing with my health without my dad so im glad that, hopefully, i will finally have my mom support. This documentary is so raw and graphic. The scene where she just got out of the wheel chair and is in the fetal position crying and crawling outside. I saw my moms expression and her tone of voice when she asked "is this what you go through?". It hurt me to see her hurt but i was so happy that she could finally see what this illness does and why i cant just call a doctor and ask for some magic pain med or cure. I really hope this breakthrough sticks. To finally have that parental support would be fantastic for my healing. She even asked if she could tell other people about it! Show it to your friends, show it to your family, even show it to that nosey neighbor who actually keeps track of the number of times your car moves since you rarely leave the house and this is totally their business (or is that just mine😒)
Side note: If you watch the office and have not seen Stanley's music video " 2 B Simple" then you must stop everything your doing. I seriously cant stop watching. It's basically Florida Stanley. He wants life to be simple and he did not stutter😂 Thats what the screenshots from!

If anyone is interested Netflix has a documentary with chronic fatigue syndrome. It's a great insight into some of the things that we go through with Autoimmune conditions 💕 .

Just finished watching Unrest, Jennifer Brea ‘s documentary on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Tears flowed as I watched Jennifer’s and other’s struggles with this horrible illness. I cried for them, for me for everyone affected by this condition, for those that love those afflicted and those who are now care givers for spouses, children and siblings. Today is day three of being house bound, couch bound. Needing a shower but there isn’t enough energy to stand under the shower head or even attempt to wash my body. Sleeping hours at a time only to wake to excruciating pain coursing through my limbs and tremors that act like aftershocks. Today I cried for myself, both sad tears of grief and joyful tears of hope... that maybe this year ME won’t be the least funded illness and maybe we might be closer to a cure or at least a treatment that gives those affected a bit more of their life back. #unrestmovie #jenniferbrea #myalgicencephalomyelitis #mecfsawareness #mecfswarrior #millionsmissing #peoplehopetribe #bedbound #housebound #missinglife

It is very rare that I find myself lost for words, but tonight I am.
I have had a difficult day. After a night of muscle spasms which kept me awake for most of the night, I struggled with numbness and soreness today. I decided to have a warm bath and curl up under the warmth of my duvet. I have eagerly awaited the day in which I could finally watch @unrestfilm
I watched @jen.brea’s TED Talk several months ago and found it incredibly beneficial to share with my friends and colleagues. When I heard that @unrestfilm had been released, I knew I had to take the time to follow @jen.brea’s story further.
I have spent the past 97 minutes with my eyes filled with tears. The same tears that rolled down my cheeks the day I was diagnosed. Somebody believed that something was wrong. Somebody believed that it was not in my head. And I felt that again this evening.
I was reminded that what I go through on a daily basis is real and I am not alone. My eyes have truly been opened.
How do we live in such a medically advanced world, yet those who suffer from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis have been forgotten. We are forgotten due to a sheer lack of understanding, research and funding.
If you have yet to watch @unrestfilm, I urge you to take the time to do so.
And @jen.brea, I cannot thank you enough. You are inspiration to us all.
So today I watched Jennifer Brea's film, Unrest. Now as you guys know I suffer from fibromyalgia, not CFS however I feel there is a connection between all spoonies, in that a lot of us share the same struggle therefore I thought it was worth the watch and I do not regret it. I thought there were injustices in the workplace and society in general against those that suffer from a chronic illness, in that we're shuned or viewed as lazy, (As Ricky Gervais put it, "Oh M.E... That's the one where you say 'I don't feel like going to work today.'" I had no idea however that there was more than social injustice going on across the world against CFS sufferers. The Danish governemnt forcibly removes CFS suffers from their home because they do not believe that CFS is a physical illness but a psychiatric one that the suffers' create from false beliefs that are indulged by their parents and therefore the solution is to remove them from their family. One such girl was Karina who was forcibly taken from her home and who returned from an institution to her family three years later, still suffering from CFS. The stigma attached to chronic illness I considered to be a great one but I wasn't aware of the severity and danger attached to it. My heart ached when I watched this and I wish I had known about this and the Millions Missings protests as I wouldn've shown my support and solidarity.
In watching this film I got a bit of a history lesson of how chronic illness and CFS in particular was treated by medical professionals throughout history and it was not pretty. In the 1800s there would have been instances of flu like illnesses however there would be a small percentage that would not get better and whose symptoms would develop and evolve. Doctors would diagnose the patients with hysteria, from sexual deprivation and other 'mental' illnesses and would institutionalise them. Take Multiple Sclerosis for example, which was referred to as hysterical paralysis right up until the invention of the CAT scan, until they could see the little white spots on the brain that were physical proof.
You and I may find the evidence found in Lake Tahoe in 1984 incontrovertible, in which a girls⬇️

Tipsar om dokumentären UNREST på Netflix - tung och sorglig, men ack så viktigt perspektiv! Till alla som bemötts som hysterisk eller psykiskt sjuk av vården; du är inte ensam ♥

Wow! Get on Netflix and watch this amazing documentary 'Unrest' brilliantly done by Jennifer Brea. Chronic fatigue, ME and the auto immune disease struggle is so real. I've been bed-ridden before and it is no fun. It's always a balance between keeping moving and not exerting oneself. I'm having a relapse at the moment, been in bed most of the day and comforted so much by this story. Millions are suffering and we will keep moving on! This is why I started healing kitchen coach, because when I entered a ketogenic state, by brain inflammation radically reduced and now I'm on a mission to feed my mitochondria! #wellnesscoach #healingkitchencoach #millionsmissing #chronicfatigue #autoimmunedisease #findacure #mustwatch #jenniferbrea

Sinopse: Neste documentário emocionante, uma estudante de 28 anos cursando o doutorado em Harvard registra sua própria luta contra a síndrome da fadiga crônica.
Crítica: Por cerca de 5 anos, Jennifer Brea generosamente compartilhou sua intimidade enquanto documentava a evolução irrefreável da Síndrome da Fadiga Crônica ou Encefalomielite miálgica, uma doença ainda incurável que aleijou seu espírito espontâneo e apaixonado, mas não o incapacitou.
Pelo contrário, deu-lhe um propósito novo, certamente mais nobre e altruísta: desmascarar o baixo investimento financeiro em pesquisas científicas e o tratamento medieval feito por médicos de países desenvolvidos, bem como revelar histórias de outros pacientes e agir, proativamente, para que a sociedade conheça essa doença e a medicina diagnostique com maior precisão.
A inexperiência de Jennifer Brea na direção pode custar foco e objetividade à narrativa, porém oferece algo mais importante em forma de espontaneidade e humanidade neste que é um dos 15 documentários semifinalistas na corrida pelo Oscar da categoria. Um tratado comovente sobre a dor física e também espiritual provocada por esta enfermidade.

In bed - yes, this early - watching this documentary after @charliannedesigns said how good it was. #nowwatching #unrest #ME #CFS #documentary #jenniferbrea

When Harvard PhD student Jennifer Brea is struck down at 28 by a fever that leaves her bedridden, doctors tell her it's "all in her head." Determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and her community, a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly called chronic fatigue syndrome.

Unrest av Jennifer Brea. Om ni har möjlighet att se den - gör det. (Finns tex på Netflix och iTunes). Om en missförstådd komplex sjukdom överrepresenterad hos kvinnor, de som arbetar mot de drabbade och de som arbetar med dem. Om fruktansvärda övergrepp genom historien och fram till idag. Det otroliga mod hos de som orkar kämpa, och de få forskare som idag med små medel gör allt för att hitta svar. Har svårt att samla mina tankar pga me-hjärna och för att den är så personlig och känslomässig för mig, men ett se-måste oavsett om du är berörd eller inte.

Just found out the documentary Unrest is now on’s an excellent insight into what it’s like to suffer with ME/CFS, especially at the moderate - severe end. It’s a long one at ~90mins but definitely definitely worth a watch...even if you dip in and out of it! .

I'm really glad this film exists, but I'm not sure if I have the emotional spoons at the moment to actually watch it. If you're not a spoonie but are interested in learning a bit about how it can be for us, please do watch it. If you are a spoonie with more emotional resilience than me (not hard!), and you've watched it, am I right to avoid it? #unrest #jenniferbrea #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #spoonies #spoonielife #spoontheory [Image Description: screengrab of the netflix page for Unrest, a documentary about chronic fatigue syndrome.]
