Perhaps if you rephrased the question to something more like "How do you think your condition makes you different from others from your point of view"?

Louise:
I haven't seen your treatment, so I don't know what you're planning, but were I to make something like this, and especially having seen what the TV people do, I'd segment your work a little more....remember, this is a life-long affliction, there are all sorts of facets to it, and all sorts of angles. On this board, you're talking mostly to adults. What about children (read the parents forum if you want some perspective). If you've only got 5 minutes, that's rough, but if you really want to do a significant piece, you've got some digging to do, especially when you get an answer to your question about how it affects ones life like "it doesn't affect my life. It is my life, and I'm happy with my life, thank you." And then, of course, there's the other extreme.
Good luck.

btdt - thanks. I'm also looking into other angles of it - wp is just one method of research. I'm going to learn as much as I can for a while, then try to figure out how exactly to make best use of the film's time limit.

Anbuend, just wanted to let you know that I've now read Getting The Truth Out. It's very well-written and moving. Also sent you an email, although not had a response yet, so am mentioning it here in case it didn't send properly...?

Please! Please! It's in England...


I would say there are probably two or more places in the world called Suffolk.
