Thank you for this

Thank you Shelly for this Podcast. I find your voice very soothing and you have helpful practical advice and very interesting guests. I appreciate that your guests feature a wide range of pain/illness issues. It's really helpful to me as I experience a lot of pain and the difficult emotions that come along with it.
