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.

Much love,

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.
