Although the presenter seems fairly over-dramatic (like in many American documentaries – sorry American readers), I can definitely relate to the comments made in the preview for this film.
I’ll be watching it when it is released online at after November 16.

    I only saw 1/2 of program since it aired 8:00 Sat. a.m. I cried thru what I watched since I have had chronic pain 18 years but otherwise no life threatening illnesses. Never had flu, one cold in past 25 years – just barely able to move at times (fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, R/A, degenerative disc disease). Identified with caregiver issues (husband tells me feels so helpless watching me suffer). Became trained Massage Therapist to help me get relief. Thank you Discovery Channel for this message of validation and hope. I have dealt with all these issues with physicians, knowing they can’t “fix” it….just give me relief. Please air this documentary periodically as the word gets around. I believe GOD let me find it just to give me encouragement. Thank everyone again, and I will be sure to watch whole program as I found it was going to re-air 12/14/13. I bless you all. SUE H.

      Hi Sue, glad you found out about the show and that you connected with it. I agree it would be great to get the word out more and maybe airing this more often would help.
