Having suffered from chronic fatigue & being fortunate enough to recover I was keen to collaborate with Chloe on an account that documents her experiences of another chronic illness causing sudden disability.
ADEM, likened to MS is a neurological disease effecting around 8 in a million people a year. It’s further paralysis is how it affects the brain in the form of loss of consciousness & in severe cases even death. The further isolation & separateness one experiences due to what is unknown & invisible can deepen the impact, other examples of unseen illnesses are depression & ME.
Chloe and I considered ourselves to be exceptionally lucky in our recovery. This film tells of how Chloe’s determination and will helped her to come out the other side.
