Fixers

Yesterday, I was filmed by FixersUK for a short film, aimed at raising awareness of Cluster Headaches. 

Fixers UK are a UK charity who help 16-25 year olds get their 'story' or passion 'out there' via social media, short films, flash mobs, poster campaigns, etc. 

The film aims to show an attack in full swing, to give the viewer an idea of the agony, panic and disorientation an attack can bring about. Obviously it is difficult to truly give an outsider an idea of pain intensity, but I hope I have put it across well. I also hope it is informative for any medical professionals that may watch it!

The video should be completed and distributed online early next year.

Arise and be all that you dreamed.

Yeah, the attack-in-full-swing bit.
I assume you had one?
I hope they didn't keep you suffering for too long.

The film will be released any day now!! 

Helen - sorry about the delay in responding. I found out about Fixers UK due to their work with Stephen Sutton (you may have heard of him?) He came from my home town, and attended my high school too (although not at the same time), and I attended one of his 'good gesture' days, a tick off his bucket list Biggrin I contacted them and asked for their help in raising awareness of CH and the lack of understanding we face when it comes to the general public, and even medical professionals.

Arise and be all that you dreamed.
