After months of thinking to finally put more than 130 clips together in order to make an autobiographical documentary about a day in my life, it's finally done! I had to learn some basic video editing first, of course... I still have to make a better thumbnail but at least it's finally live, after a lot of time consuming rendering and uploading and re-uploading when Youtube complained about the length... and so on!
This is a biopic, i.e.an autobiographic documentary about a day in my life. Be warned that it is an hour long so please watch it at your leisure! I'm an artist who have been suffering all my life from a spinal deformation that has caused fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. In act, insomnia is my most difficult health challenge. It's not going in a good direction. My aim is to bring awareness to chronic and often invisible illnesses, and fatigue in particular. Fatigue is a very debilitating condition that can make people very isolated and even alienated from the rest of society. I have also attempted to express this in my art.
I have, however, offered a lot of coping strategies in this film, and hope this will inspire others to deal with their own ailments. There is music, and lots of footage of my three wonderful cats too. My husband, whose invaluable help and support has made this film possible, is in it too.
If you suffer from fibromaylgia or any similar conditon, you might appreciate that we should share our experiences in order to feel less alone!
