Fatigue is supposedly one of the most common symptoms of chronic illnesses. It is the common thread between so many disabled people. Fatigue can run our lives in nearly every way imaginable. Even more frustrating is when we reach out for support and are met with disbelief from doctors to friends and family. This show is meant to highlight the experiences of those with fatigue. A chance for us to share our stories and hype one another.

The health of some of the perfomers may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances–which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure. (Borrowed from Gay City Arts)
