From injuries, illness to chronic pain, today we’re talking about the struggles of staying healthy when circumstances get difficult.
As well as a brand-spanking new acronym from Carla, we also have a very special guest today. Jennette Fulda is the author of Chocolate & Vicodin (of which you could win a copy – read on!)
Her memoir chronicles the story of a headache like no other:
Jennette Fulda went to bed on February 17, 2008, with a headache, and more than three years later, it still hasn’t gone away. Yes, she’s tried everything: intravenous drugs, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, subliminal messaging, marijuana (for medical purposes only), heavy drinking (which just made it hurt more), and lots and lots of chocolate.
In this painfully honest, smart, and funny memoir, the popular PastaQueen.com blogger who chronicled her nearly two hundred pound weight loss in Half-Assed shares her incredible journey to find relief from a chronic headache. As she visits countless doctors, indulges all manner of unsolicited advice from the Internet, and investigates every possible cause, from a brain tumor to a dead twin living in her brain, Jennette considers what it means to suffer, how to live with pain, and why the best treatment might be the simplest: laughter.”
With her trademark grace and humour, Jennette talks to us about her headache experience, how it’s changed her life and offers some great tips on coping with chronic pain.
Here’s how to listen:
