202: What to Do About Your Mysterious Illness with Sarah Ramey
On the Well Woman Show this week, I talk to Sarah Ramey, a survivor of chronic illnesses and a writer living in Washington, DC. She just released her first book, THE LADY’S HANDBOOK FOR HER MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS. She has an MFA in creative nonfiction writing from Columbia in 2007 and worked on President Obama’s 2008 campaign and she's a musician.
On the show we talk about:
How Sarah fought to overcome her illness and prove that she wasn’t weak, or crazy.
The lack of support in our healthcare system for invisible illnesses.
Why society needs to take an empathetic approach to healthcare as we move forward.
