Made a by Jennifer Brea, a woman who suffers from the condition herself and seeks to raise awareness of the stigma surrounding this debilitating disease, which many still believe is "all in the patient's head".

Provides an important investigation of the way society currently treats people who have illnesses we don't know much about yet. Brea is an intelligent journalist and academic who avoids rejecting mainstream medicine, but is willing to critically explore it alongside a large range of other medical practices and ideologies, in her brave pursuit of knowledge and understanding.
