  • Without scientific proof of this disease, "you’re left with personal anecdote," begins Producer Kim Snyder. This is the story of her four-year journey to gather testimony from CFS patients, physicians, and stricken communities from coast to coast.
  • A severely disabled Connecticut teen attends his graduation on a gurney, and Olympic Gold Soccer Winner Michelle Ackers describes being knocked out of the game.
  • A reunion of small-town residents in Florida - 50 years after the CFS outbreak that devastated hundreds of lives there without explanation.
  • Doctors’ accounts of other outbreaks, from the original "Lake Tahoe cluster" in Incline Village, Nevada, to Lydonville, New York, where more than 100 people were stricken in the mid-80s.
From the CFS community’s perspective, this film is a vivid and powerful tool - the like of which we’ve never had before – for generating media attention, public and medical community education, and government advocacy, perhaps in condensed form. Books, DVDs and other educational materials are not sold with ProHealth's money-back guarantee. Top reviewers say: A documentary which does what the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta shamefully failed to do: Connect the dots. - Roger Ebert/The Chicago Sun-Times Very affecting… I couldn’t stop watching… I remained glued to my seat as Snyder traveled around the U.S. talking to similarly stricken Americans, creating a visual discourse about CFS. - Alli Joseph/TNT Rough Cut An intrepid sleuth, Ms. Snyder seems to have left no stone unturned in her search for answers. - Stephen Holden/The New York Times A tender, yet pointed documentary of perseverance, thwarted hope, and medical buffoonery. - Gene Seymour/Newsday Demonstrates well… the way that illness separates the world into "us" (the sick) and "them" (the healthy). - John Petrakis/The Chicago Tribune Simultaneously beautiful and haunting, I Remember Me demystifies Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with a compelling, almost palpable force. - Elizabeth Karlsberg/Santa Barbara News Press
