    Thats really my question? has anyone seen any films where people in it suffer from FM or CFS? I just thought it might help my family and friends, (if its portrayed correctly?)

    Thank you,

    There is one that I know of on CFIDS called "I remember me". I ordered it (originally thought it was about FMS-I don't think I have CFIDS), but anyway thought it was a good film, but sad. They showed a high school boy who was bedridden with CFIDS, who managed to attend his graduation on a stretcher. The person who produced this film has CFIDS herself.

    I think you can still order this, but can't remember where I ordered it from. I think it was from a website called Amazon, but don't remember the website address.

    Dear Shelby,
    There is an episode of the Golden girls where Bea Arthur has CFS. It showed the symptoms, and the ignorance and bigotry of many doctors. She finally found a Dr. to treat her, and then confronted the "bad" Dr. What a validation!
