Storyline

In 1984-85, people at Lake Tahoe fell ill with flu symptoms, but they didn't get better. Medical literature documents similar outbreaks: in 1934 at LA county hospital, in 1948-49 in Iceland, in 1956 in Punta Gorda, Florida. The malady now has a name, chronic fatigue syndrome, and filmmaker Kim Snyder, who suffered from the disease for several years, tells her story and talks to victims and their families, and to physicians and researchers: is it viral, it is psychosomatic, is it one disease or several (a syndrome) ; what's the CDC doing about it; what's it like to have a disease that's not yet understood? Her inquiry takes her to Punta Gorda and to a high-school graduation. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

For sufferers and doubters and certainly for physicians
18 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone interested in the veracity of CFIDS (formerly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) needs to see this film. Although much research has been done since the film was made - not much ground has been covered and certainly no cure has been found. Those of us who suffer from this disease need more people to view this film with an open mind, compassion and empathy. It is well researched and covers all views of the topic - from disbelievers to sufferers. A must-see documentary for anyone interested in illness and the ways in which it impacts lives. If viewing this piques your interest also check out 'Osler's Web' by Hillary Johnson - the only comprehensively researched book to date on the horrifying consequences of the medical communities failure to act in a swift & compassionate manner - which caused untold suffering & continues to promote skepticism and prejudice in the eyes of the general public. We haven't come far enough - but this film does much to educate the layman as to the depth of the suffering cfids victims face daily. Thank you Kim Snyder for helping to tell our story!
