S1E26: The Difficulties with Having No Support

Meet warrior, Kale Sastre. Kale is an anthropologist and avid adventurer who grew up being sick a lot, but her family wouldn’t believe her or take her pain seriously. Kale learned to be very independent hiding her symptoms until they worsened. She was later diagnosed with migraine, spine issues, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety and PTSD, resulting in severe pain, exhaustion, and balance issues. Listen as Kale shares her story, the hardships of managing her chronic conditions essentially by herself and the outlet writing has provided. To read her articles on chronic illness or her published works of fiction, go to her website at https://ksastre.wordpress.com.
