Mind the Abyss

This video is a powerful description of sudden onset ME/CFS. (Those who had acute onsets will find it achingly familiar.) Unlike most other videos on this subject, it does not rely on speech to get the point across.

Often images and music can do a better job of portraying reality than interviews. The emotive content of abstract representation seems to bypass the skepticism that is aroused in people, particularly physicians, when they hear people speak. Music hits us in a place that has no defenses.

If I could, I would show this video to every physician and medical student - everywhere.
