My Interview with Voices for Change Is Up

0e4e1a_9797f731a5ed4e9abd221dba1d047768-mv2Yesterday, you may have heard my interview on Sirius XM.  If not, here’s a link to listen to my interview on Voices For Change podcast by clicking here. I myself was gone at the first debate tournament of the new school year.  I coach high school debate; mercifully this tournament was only 11 hours long.  After the competition, I listened to the interview while having dinner with my mom at Panera.  It is 66 minutes long but a lot of fun.  Hosts Rebecca and Joe Lombardo (wife and husband team) and producer Shane Shultz didn’t just ask me about bipolar disorder, depression coping mechanisms, and polycystic ovarian syndrome and myasthenia gravis, we talked pop culture.  They asked me about my top three favorite movies and bands, which I think is great. Too often we have a tendency to reduce people to their illnesses.  I also talk about why I started Fashionably ill ® in 2012 and what drives me to advocate despite my fatigue and chronic pain.
