Episode 7: Badass Boundaries for women living with chronic illness Michelle Irving
How do you have boundaries when you are living with chronic illness? In this interview Sarah Ramey turns the tables and interviews Michelle Irving - in a raw, real and bold conversation. Michelle talks about how she found her own Badass Boundaries when she really needed to stand up for herself around treatment and care. Plus how she managed work and other people's expectations of what she should be doing, especially when she was very unwell.
Sarah and Michelle also talk about why the Greek Myth of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld is the psychological map for serious illness and how you can use it to re-shape your experience and overall wellbeing, even if your physical condition remains the same.
