Tonight’s show is called, “The Toll of Chronic & Invisible Illnesses.”
In the past we have done two back-to-back episodes dealing with Chronic & Invisible Illnesses, followed soon after by an episode on dealing with other people’s pathologies. Ep. 27 - Chronic & Invisible Illnesses Pt. 1 8-9-17 (Intro to), Ep. 28 - Chronic & Invisible Illnesses Pt. 2 8-23-17 (Public Perception, Caretakers), and Ep. 30 - Coping with Someone Else's Pathologies 9-20-17.
Tonight, we want to focus on a different and specific aspect of Chronic and Invisible Illnesses, and this will apply in some part to most disabilities, illnesses, conditions, or pathologies, as well; some more so than others. When we say the “Toll” of Chronic illness, there are obviously monetary costs, but we mean more of a social and mental cost of having it.
We will begin the show with topic relevant rock music played by Dr. Mathis, followed by "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls" (classic rock trivia stories), followed by our topic discussion.
