Queen of the Underworld. Life, Love and Bedrest
I was delighted to be interviewed by the gorgeous Monica Michelle, host of the utterly brilliant podcast Explicitly Sick. We had a very honest discussion about chronic illness, love, life and expectations from bed rest.
Lessons Learned Through My Conversations with Death
It was great to speak with podcast host Kimberly Hambrick about what it feels like to have a life-threatening illness and what I have learned in dialogue with death.
We talk about the Emotional Map that people experience when confronting life-threatening illness. Plus ‘What to say’ and ‘What not to say’ to a loved one going through this type of experience.
This is for anyone going through such an illness or have a loved one that is.
Setting Boundaries while living with Chronic Illness
It was wonderful to talk with Amanda Love about living with migraine associated vertigo (MAV) and an Autoimmune Condition of my Liver.
I reveal my conversation with death, and how I determined which drugs I would take and when.
Plus how I developed important healthy boundaries with both my clinicians and in my personal relationships.
Ease and Intuition
I am not here to rescue.
This has been one of the greatest lessons for me as part of my personal Feminine Maturity. I loved talking with Annie, host of Rebel Therapist – a podcast for therapist entrepreneurs.
This is a behind the scenes look at how and why I created the Finding Feminine Maturity online course. Plus why mythology is part of my process.
We also talk about why intuitive guidance is the most practical tool you have for connecting with others.
Career change from Government to Survivorship Coach
In this podcast host Shandra Moran of the Transit Lounge talks with guest Michelle about how her rare autoimmune condition influenced her career change. Here is how she moved from 20 year career working across Government, including health policy into her soul’s work.
Michelle is a Survivorship Coach – one of the first in Australia – working with women with significant health conditions to support them in managing their condition beyond hospital care, as well as how to effectively communicate with others in their life.
It’s time to talk about it.
I rolled out of bed one Sunday morning and made it as far as the hallway before my whole world started to swirl and I was falling. Logic tells you that once you reach the floor the falling should stop. Even though I knew I was lying on the floor, my stomach kept lurching. I frantically tried to grasp at something, anything to stop the sensation. It didn’t work.
And so began the last five years of my life living with Migraine Associated Vertigo – basically instead of getting the pounding headache we normally associate with migraines, you get – I get – vertigo. The problem is that lying in the dark, going to sleep and waking up the next morning doesn’t fix this type of migraine. I spent months lying in bed 24/7 feeling like I was falling. Every sound, every movement, every turning on of the light – made it worse.
There was no alternative.
I had to take serious medication and begin the ascent back up to...
No End in Sight with Autoimmune Illness
I have been bed-bound twice with very serious illnesses in the last decade. In this No End in Sight interview with USA host Brianne Benness I share about my spiritual and emotional experience of illness, my focus on self-compassion, and how I used Greek mythology to build a map that makes sense of the chronic illness cycle.
