Transcript

I’m Brianne Benness and this is No End In Sight, a podcast about life with chronic illness.

As usual, here’s a quick plug for my patreon campaign just in case you’ve been enjoying the show and also have a few bucks to spare each month. I’ve been using the patreon money to subsidize the cost of transcribing the podcast. So, if you’re interested and able to contribute, you can find that at patreon.com/noendinsight.

This week I’m talking to R A A Dakar about ME and fibro, the isolation of chronic illness, and mourning the person you used to be.

Before we start, here’s my disclaimer:

This podcast is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Make sure you talk to your practitioner about any questions or symptoms.
