ME/CFS is a common condition affecting up to 240,000 Australians, a quarter of whom are housebound or even bed bound. Very few health practitioners have seen the range and severity of symptoms, because patients only attend appointments when they are well enough to do so. Unrest brings to the screen the hidden lives of those with the illness and those who care for them.
Not only does Unrest shed light on the realities of living with ME/CFS, it can create a space to engage in important conversations about the impact of any major chronic illness on patients and caregivers. It also inspires providers to think about how they can best support patients confronting diseases for which there are no clear treatments or cures and to reconnect with the reasons they first chose their healing profession.
