This episode is entitled, “Chronic & Invisible Illnesses Pt. 1." We will be talking about what it is like to be someone who has a Chronic Illness, especially one that is “invisible,” or not obvious to others, such as being wheelchair bound or missing a limb, for example.
On our next show, on Wednesday August 23rd, we will cover Part 2 of this topic, where we also talk more specifically about public perception of Chronic and Invisible Illnesses, as well as being a caregiver, partner, or parent of someone who has a Chronic Illness.
Tonight, let’s talk about what exactly Chronic Illnesses are, their impact on those who have them, and resources and coping mechanisms.
