Editorial Reviews

Fueled by the same rage at an unresponsive system that has inspired many a great social documentary, filmmaker Kim Snyder has taken up the fight for the more than 800,000 people living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in the U.S. today. CFS has recently received much high-profile media discussion due to SEABISCUIT author Laura Hillenbrand’s longtime battle with the disease. Investigating the baffling malady once maligned as "yuppie flu," Snyder interweaves her own four-year battle with the disease with the stories of others facing the same challenges; soccer star Michelle Akers and legendary Hollywood director Blake Edwards (BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY's, THE PINK PANTHER) are among the participants. More than an account of an epidemic unfolding, I REMEMBER ME speaks to universal themes of loss, human perseverance and the difficulties in grappling with uncertainty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Documentary of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome August 15, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
As a physician who has dedicated my career to treating patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, I found I Remember Me to be a poignant, touching and true to life documentary. Despite the fact that I see people on a regular basis who are disabled by the ravages of CFS, I still found the film to be simultaneously heart wrenching and hopeful, bringing tears my eyes several times. Everyone should see this film. It is informative on many levels, not only just for those afflicted, but family and friends, as well as every medical professional and the general public.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Time April 9, 2002
By A Customer
For those suffering from Chronic Fatigue this film is very encouraging and was a long time coming. It legitimizes a really miserable (and genuine) illness that for too long has been written off as simply some form of hysteria. For the sufferers, it's a relief to see they're not alone--and to see so many smart and compassionate doctors and researchers who are taking it very seriously indeed.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only one. November 3, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
How happy I was to find this most important documentary on CFIDS. I felt so grateful to Kim Snyder for making this film which, not only let me know I am not alone but, gave me a very good visual tool to educate my family,friends and colleagues who really don't get it. My husband and I were particularly struck by the testimony of one family member who related that, unless you live with a CFIDS sufferer you really have no idea. The fact is that people only see us when we are having a good day and can get out of bed through the miracle of chemistry. This is a must have film for all CFIDS sufferers. Buy two! One for you and one to lend out. I only wish there were more than one film on this subject and that it were easier to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and healing May 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I was certainly one of those people who knew little and cared less about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This film changed all that. It challenged my preconceptions and inspired me to both appreciate my own health and to be more caring and open-minded with people who suffer from any illness.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A COMFORT TO THOSE WHO SUFFER September 28, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Those of us who suffer from this disease can attest to the fact that part of the tragedy and suffering is caused by the lack of understanding which we face from those close to us and the medical community. Make everyone important in your life watch this great movie. If you are a victim of the disease, you will find comfort in knowing that you are not alone and you are not crazy. We need more movies like this to bring awareness of the severity of CFS to the general public. Then, possibly, more funding would be available for research. Personally, I believe that CFS, Fibromyalgia, TMJ, IBS, MVP and a host of other "vague syndromes" are all just symptoms of one base disease. I like to call it "Devastation Disease".

5.0 out of 5 stars Best video to introduce CFIDS October 17, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This video documents the history of CFIDS as seen throught the eyes of someone with the illness. A great video for anyone with CFIDS to acknowledge others with the same symptoms and problems. A great video for friends and family of CFIDS patients, a brief overview of the illness. Fantastic for those who don't know what it is to suffer with this illness.
