New Episode Alert! WTF Does "Wellness" Even Mean? 🤷‍♀️

Wellness is a societal construct. There. We said it. In this episode, @chronicallymeh, @xokat, and @skyeg explore their personal definitions of what it means to be “well,” how chronic conditions play into their perspectives, and why wellness culture has become a toxic beast that cannot be tamed. And for all you optimists out there, listen as Shruti gently breaks Kat and Skye’s brains with her reframing of wellness and how to find joy and peace in very unwell moments. (See? We’re all about balance!)

What have you learned from therapy?

If you live with chronic illness or pain of any kind, you know how challenging it can be to manage the mental health side of things. For some folks, seeing a psychotherapist is a crucial part of treating their physical health conditions. Others might not find going to therapy useful, or they might not have the resources — financial, time, energy, or otherwise — to do so.

We asked our spoonie community if they’ve ever gone to therapy to process their chronic pain or illness. While 30% of the folks who responded to the poll said that they’re currently in therapy and it helps them cope with their chronic condition, 19% said they’re in therapy but it’s not helping. Another 19% answered that they’re not currently attending therapy sessions, but are wondering if it’d help them process what they’re going through.

🧠 To learn why therapy is such an important part of Mighty staffer Skye’s migraine treatment and about the first time the interconnection between physical and mental health really sunk in for Kat, listen to episode six of Health and (un)Wellness here: open.spotify.com/episode/4m1l6upAHlaNoEa5TeLxXK

My Epiphany Letter.....I Need My Life Back!

Sometimes, life with chronic illness can be overwhelming. It’s not always because of your disease either.

It’s often all the appointments, including doctors, allied health professionals, equipment trials, dealing with government departments, routine tests and procedures, etc. It can become a full-time job. Your body becomes your business, your place of work, and you can quickly feel as if you are losing all sense of illness/work/life balance.

In fact, you wake up one day and realise you no longer have a life, and each days agenda is being determined by anyone and everyone, but definitely not by you.

This was my epiphany when I woke up the other day. I had a list of upcoming events, life changing events in many regards, running through my mind.

In this podcast I share with you the epiphany moment I had, resulting in a life changing letter where I draw a line in the sand and take my life back!

Celebrating A Life with Chronic Illness and so Grateful for Milestones and Opportunities

I so hope you enjoy this blog post, celebrating over 4000 plays on my podcast.

In this blog post, I've included links to the top podcast episodes, which include interviews with other chronic illness warriors.

Each of their own chronic illness and disease journeys are just so inspiring and well worth listening to. The links are embedded in the blog post.

I am forever grateful for anyone listening, reading, following, liking, and commenting. You all mean the world to me.

I'm incredibly grateful to The Mighty for publishing so many of my articles since 2017 and providing me with a writing platform that encouraged me to become a published author last year.

Such blessings remind me daily that Chronic illness is a part of our lives, not all of our lives.

Love, Sam xx

Wow! I’ve Reached an Amazing Podcast Milestone.

Do you prefer podcasts with or without guests?

Here’s a hot take: some of the best podcast episodes have no guests at all. (Did you nod? Shrug? Throw something because you vehemently disagree?) I’d love to hear your thoughts on this: Does having guests on certain episodes of podcasts make you want to listen or does it encourage you to skip?

🎙️ P.S. The latest guest-less episode of Health & (un)Wellness dropped this week!

Ah migraine, the most annoying third wheel of all time. It’s a universal truth that migraine affects our relationships in ways both good and bad. In this episode, Kat and Skye get honest about dating — just wait until you hear about Skye’s experiment with dating apps — as well as their connections with family and friends.

What Would You Like To Do For The Rest of Your Life Despite Chronic Illness?

I'm so aware reading articles and blog posts can be tiring and time consuming, especially when living with chronic illness.

I've been writing for #TheMighty for over 6 years, blogging for 8 years and had my first book published in 2022.

I love that usually when my writing is published in any form, I get feedback from some readers that it was just what they needed to read.

Sometimes that might be feedback from one person who was in a place where they needed someone to really understand what they were going through. Sometimes the posts reaonate with 100's if not 100 000's of people. I really never know what the response will be, it's so hit and miss.

My aim with my writing and patient advocacy activities has always been to reach at least one person in their hour of need. That makes it all worthwhile.

With this blog post, I'd really like to encourage you to read it if the following applies to you:

1. You feel chronic illness has taken everything from you and it's all you can think about or,

2. You feel like you are at the point where you want to do more with your life, despite chronic illness but need some help or,

3. You just feel stuck and are not sure how to move forward or what you might be capable of doing.

This post is available on my blog and on my Podcast if listening, rather than reading, is easier for you.

Both links are below.

Above all, thank you to everyone who does take the time to read and give me feedback. I appreciate it so much.

Sam 💚

What Would You Like To Do For The Rest of Your Life, Despite Chronic Illness? by Medical Musings With Sam

When we live with chronic illness, the concept of continuous improvement seems almost ridiculous doesn’t it. But is it? Our lives, while significantly impacted by our diseases, don’t need to be completely dictated by them. We can make changes which will catapult us into a new future. We can see our new circumstances as a time of opportunity, rather than a time of retreat and despair.
