Kim Snyder has made an outstanding contribution towards elevating the public awareness of this debilitating syndrome through her educational and informative documentary. This is an important first step in alleviating the prejudices that these people to frequently encounter, not only by the public, but also frequently by medical professionals. You can read about CFS all day long, but until you really get involved in the life of a patient with it, either directly or indirectly by letting Kim Snyder give you a glimpse, a true understanding is difficult to achieve.
Aside from the informational aspects of I Remember Me, the cinematography is creative and expressive. Kim Snyder does more than just describe, define and date; she uses the film to let the viewer into her world, sharing the feelings, fears, and dreams of reality so frequently associated with chronic illness and shared by so many affected by CFS. She reveals a great deal of how the experience of life with CFS can be altered in so many ways, from the mundane details of daily life, to the grand realization of lifelong dreams. This is a very deep, personal expression of the journey patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome face.
But it's even more important for the non-believers to see it. This film should be mandatory viewing for the families and friends of people suffering from Chronic Fatigue. These patients are not malingerers. This is serious suffering. I have CFS myself and the fatigue, on my worst days, makes me feel like I'm dying (and wish that I were).
One doctor in this film says that 20 years from now, the one factor regarding this illness that will seem the most incredible (even more than the suffering itself) is the indifference toward it and the disbelief surrounding it. Not just the indifference and disbelief of the unafflicted--but of physicians! Many of whom still refuse to even respect it.
This film does respect a condition which, at it's worst, can cause a misery just about as deep as a human can bear.
A beautifully crafted film that both informs and entertains, "I Remember Me" engaged me with its personal stories and dramatic revelations. Definitely worth owning to share with friends and family.
Because many of the symptoms of this illness are not immediately visible to others, sufferers often have a double burden, the illness itself as well as others' demeaning treatment of those who have it! As one person interviewed said, "You wouldn't call pneumonia "chronic coughing syndrome!" This film aptly demonstrated the physical and interpersonal pain in dealing with the illness, as well as the government's continuing inept response to researching the cause and cure.
This film most importantly is about loss and a must for anyone grieving the loss of any part of themselves, through illness or other means. It is also a wake-up call to us to pressure Congress to fund additional research to find a cause and cure for this devastating illness!

This movie is very informative and a bit scary. It addresses Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I believe many of our society's "illness" are caused by our government. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Penny
