Insulting drivvle cobbled together by mindless producers
16 August 2018 | by syeoakSee all my reviews

An absolute insult to the Chronically Ill. Misleading, biased, and lacking in credibility and research. The prejudice is cringeworthy. Do not waste your time with Horseh*t like this. For a mor realistic and informed report on Chronic Illlness, watch 'Unrest'. Do not waste your life watching this post-grad journalistic rubbish.
