Phenomenal, real and informative stories of life with CI
This podcast is amazing. Brianne does a great job at conducting these interviews and welcoming people to share their deeply personal and often difficult stories. Navigating the diagnostic process and life with chronic illness is tough, and these interviews do a great job at sharing stories and realistic day to day experiences of people who live with CI. I’m just so happy this podcast exists and that I was lucky enough to have found it. It’s helped me to better articulate my own experience and to identify topics of conversation that I can have with people in my life when discussing CI. A great listen.
I never knew how many of us were out there. Thank you for bringing us together.
Great and honest interviews
Great and honest interviews that get at the heart of the very personal yet far reaching effects of chronic illness on folx' lives. The interviews are done with a strong ethic of care and each guest comes across as a true human and I absolutely love it
