Howdy, all my fellow ChronicBabes and ChronicDudes!

I’m so bowled over today. This weekend the first part of my interview with Dr. Paul Christo aired on his Sirius XM radio show, Aches & Gains… but I don’t have Sirius. So I had to wait until today to listen… and I am so humbled. Dr. Christo really made me sound great—it’s like he has a magic “fibro fog” filter in his editing booth. I need one of those!listen

Our interview covers so many things, and that’s just in part 1: support groups and their value; the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to pain and chronic illness management; suicide and its prevalence in our community (wow, did it get personal on that topic); sacrifices we make when we have illness and pain; my favorite support organizations; and much, much more.

You can listen now to the recording of part 1, hosted at Dr. Christo’s excellent site (he also offers tons of other resources, celebrity interviews, and a backlog of his show episodes).

And tune in next week, when part 2 airs at 5pm EST on Saturday, October 10. If you miss the live show, you can find the recording a few days later at his site, or come here; I’ll post that link, too.

Most importantly, let me know what you think of the interview! I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences, so jump into the comments below and share your story. Thanks!

UPDATED: Part 2!

The link to part 2 of my interview with Dr. Paul Christo is now live, and I am so honored and grateful to have had the opportunity to speak with him. Enjoy.
