I’m not gonna lie, this has been one of the worst few weeks I’ve had in several years. Since the assault, a bunch of old symptoms have been triggered. I’m past the deep-dark depression phase, and am now dealing with horrific light sensitivity (why yes, I am the Vampire girl who wears sunglasses in a dark room), and crap PoTS symptoms that make it hard to sit up (and yet my neck spasms make lying down too painful) or even eat.
I didn’t think I’d be able to get anything done at all, especially since I feel like I’m dying half the time. But I did.
On my very first day in the office, I was asked if I wanted to interview Jennifer Brea. Since I’m pretty involved in ‘chronic illness’ social media, I jumped at the chance. She did, after all, direct Unrest, a film about ME.
I pretty much collapsed in the lobby onto my boyfriend after the interview, and the next day was when I was grabbed in the theatre. But it is done, and it is now live!
