Response to my film has been positive and encouraging, below is some of the feedback I have received.
'Thanks for sharing Richard! Every little bit helps us to understand what the individual is going through. God bless.'
'Good luck Richard. I hope you meet more understanding people in the future. I can't imagine how I would cope in your situation. Keep on keeping on!'
'I also have this condition and I am addicted to pushing the boundaries and doing things in life they say I shouldn't be able to do. This Fixers video led me towards the LHON Facebook groups - some months later a small group of us are now trustees of the LHON society which are operating in the British Isles.'
