Moving through the grief of chronic illness: The audio book Way back in 2017 when I was still in the midst of adapting to life with chronic illness, I was searching for some sort of psychological grief model to help me make sense of everything I was going through. There was nothing out there that I could find that was helpful as most of them were trying to adapt the model that Dr Elizabeth Kübler-Ross created for patients trying to come to terms with terminal illness which didn't fit my experience. So, I decided to create my own and the result is my e-book "Moving through the Grief of Chronic illness."While I have always made my e-book freely available as a gift for joining my email community, I know that not everyone has the ability to read at the moment so this episode is an audio version just for you!While listening it's important to be aware that this is NOT a linear model. Not everyone will experience every single stage and it's very normal to switch back and forth between stages as new health challenges arise. Please share this with anyone you think needs to hear it. Kerry Jeffery is a Coach, Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist helping clients all around the world to overcome the emotional issues of living with chronic illness. She lives in Melbourne, Australia along with Hashimoto's, Celiac, Antiphospholipid Syndrome and Type 1 Diabetes.

INJABP with Aubrey- Endometriosis Awareness Month Disclaimer- The stories you are about to hear are the personal experiences of each individual and the views expressed by guests are their own. Please listen with discretion as this series contains mature content that could possibly be triggering to some individuals. Mention of depression, suicidal ideation, medical trauma, sexual assault, disorder eating and other sensitive topics may come up. Please listen at your own discretion and remember this podcast is never meant to be taken as medical advice. The stories in the It's Not Just A Bad Period Series are difficult to listen to. And I want to keep it that way because they aren't just stories, but the harrowing realities of each warrior that is bravely taking part. Although endometriosis was first identified over 160 years ago, substantial gaps in adequately addressing this disease remains. From research being severely underfunded to outdated medical procedures still being used, this disease is a beast to live with but existing in the current medical system makes it exponentially worse! I wish I could say these circumstances only exist for a few unlucky warriors but that’s not true. This is the typical experience of an endometriosis warrior and it’s time the world hears it!
This week you'll meet Aubrey, who gives incredibly solid advice on self- advocacy through the crazy rollercoaster that is endometriosis. It's one of my favorite parts of hosting this podcast, is hearing how other warriors cope with this grueling endo life. Aubrey was a delight to talk with and I know you will end this episode feeling supported! It never cease to amaze me that we are the ones fighting this disease and yet we are so quick to show up for each other. Aubrey did just that, she showed up to share her story with you!

Practitioner to Patient with Kimether- Navigating Medical Bias as an Endometriosis Warrior Pt:1 Disclaimer- The stories you are about to hear are the personal experiences of each individual and the views expressed by guests are their own. Please listen with discretion as this series contains mature content that could possibly be triggering to some individuals. Mention of depression, suicidal ideation, medical trauma, sexual assault, disorder eating and other sensitive topics may come up. Please listen at your own discretion and remember this podcast is never meant to be taken as medical advice.
This week you'll meet Kimether and hear her unique journey and perspective as a patient and practitioner. This warrior's determination absolutely blew me away. I seriously don't know how she was capable of doing all she did through the thick of her endometriosis journey. While working as a nurse AND going through med school, Kimether started to become debilitated by pelvic & back pain along with other symptoms. She was baffled that with her medical background and community of health professionals she was still left wondering what was happening to her body. She speaks to the strange switch from practitioner to patient and how once she was on the exam table it didn't seem to matter that she herself was a medical professional. Kimether brought up so many key points about navigating the medical system and tangible tips on how to do so that I just had to ask her to come back for a part 2. So please enjoy the first part of Kimether's episode and honestly get ready to take notes cause she's bringing the self advocacy tips!!

INJABP Series with Sarah- Endometriosis symptoms being present during childhood but remained undiagnosed for years & the impact of support groups Disclaimer- The stories you are about to hear are the personal experiences of each individual and the views expressed by guests are their own. Please listen with discretion as this series contains mature content that could possibly be triggering to some individuals. Mention of depression, suicidal ideation, medical trauma, sexual assault, disorder eating and other sensitive topics may come up. Please listen at your own discretion and remember this podcast is never meant to be taken as medical advice. The stories in the It's Not Just A Bad Period Series are difficult to listen to. And I want to keep it that way because they aren't just stories, but the harrowing realities of each warrior that is bravely taking part. Although endometriosis was first identified over 160 years ago, substantial gaps in adequately addressing this disease remains. From research being severely underfunded to outdated medical procedures still being used, this disease is a beast to live with but existing in the current medical system makes it exponentially worse! I wish I could say these circumstances only exist for a few unlucky warriors but that’s not true. This is the typical experience of an endometriosis warrior and it’s time the world hears it!
This week you'll meet a warrior named Sarah. After listening to other's warriors stories on the podcast she decided she was ready to share her own. Sarah mentions how hearing our host, Mariah, personal endo journey she was able to identify the presence of endometriosis symptoms starting at a much younger age than she initially realized. The conversation goes on to talk about the reality of going from fighting for a diagnosis to accepting what that means for your life. Sarah, like many of us, felt alone and misunderstood in her journey. She found herself looking for endometriosis events and in- person support group. But she was unable to find anything and like the bad ass endo- community does, she stepped up and created the exact thing she was missing. If you're in the Front Range area of Colorado make sure you check out Endo Southwest support group dates. Go give Sarah a follow on Instagram. @endosouthwest

Although endometriosis was first identified over 160 years ago, substantial gaps in adequately addressing this disease remains. From research being severely underfunded to outdated medical procedures still being used, this disease is a beast to live with but existing in the current medical system makes it exponentially worse! I wish I could say these circumstances only exist for a few unlucky warriors but that’s not true. This is the typical experience of an endometriosis warrior and it’s time the world hears it!
In the Series this week you'll meet Samantha and hear about her experience navigating the medical system in Minnesota. This warrior has been through the ringer and has a message every endo warrior needs to hear! From bladder symptoms, multiple surgeries and doctors left not knowing what else to do, Samantha bravely shares how this progressive disease can change every aspect of your life. We chat about the importance of sharing our realities and the important work the online endo community does. We both share how it's our hope that Series like this one and our posts on Instagram will pave the way for the change and representation our community needs.

I wish I could say these circumstances only exist for a few unlucky warriors but that’s not true. This is the typical experience of an endometriosis warrior and it’s time the world hears it!
In this week's episode you'll hear from our very own host, Mariah and her firsthand account on how the online endo community lead her to having excision surgery with one of the best, Dr. Sinervo at the Center for Endometriosis Care. The purpose of this series is to highlight our realities of trying to access care for endometriosis in the current medical landscape and how that desperately needs to change. Our experiences of medical trauma are not only not unique but contribute to the lack of care we receive. It’s not that some of us have fallen through the cracks. Its not just some of us who wait far too long to even receive a diagnosis. It’s not just that some of us don’t have the access to the kinds of specialists we need. 1 in 10 people assigned female at birth are diagnosed with endometriosis. Really stop to think about how common that makes this debilitating and currently incurable disease.
Check out the CEC website below as their website is a great and always up-to-date resource for endometriosis care.

Car Shopping with a Wheelchair: Host, Monica Michelle Note: This is my opinion only. I have Ehlers-Danlos, POTS, MCAD, and Fibromyalgia.If you just want a quick answer: Subaru Outback 2023Hi everyone!Welcome to the new series: Disabled Tech ReviewsThe list of “special” and “luxury” items are not so for those of us in chronic pain. I have a budget that for my personal sit-in gets laughed out of existence.The general list used to be:SafetyMPGEnough space for kidsA CD playerAh, the simple life that at the time I thought was untenable. Now with Ehlers dances so advanced I must at the very least have my power wheelchair available I have found sedans are just crossed off the list. They might have the ability with a master’s thesis in Jenga to be able to fit the wheelchair but even if this was possible my cane will not fit as well in case I have a wild flight of optimism that I might be able to walk. Those of you in the know please feel free to roll your eyes or laugh the knowing laugh of those of us who will absolutely have the cause of death written optimism she knew better but thought she could anyway.Ok so even without the wheelchair I might have the body of a middle age woman but my ligaments are more that fossilized posits not you found at the bottom of a bag covered in debris. What I am saying is sedans are low to the ground. Getting in and out of them is my Everest.So sedans and sports cars are out. Minivans while intriguing do not have the space without a massive amount of engineering. Trucks! I LOVE trucks I have wanted one my entire life but the securing in the bed and walking around let’s just say I was too worn out after a quick try to even think of driving. But the electric trucks have frunks! Ah yes, the frunk. I LOVE the lightning. The F150 is the car I dream of as I remember the boys in high school dreamed of having a Lamborghini, and for the cost, it is just as likely I will ever own one. If you can afford it please let me know how amazing it is as a wheelchair user. I promise no dark jealous thoughts will be cast your way only slightly simmering resentment.So an SUV it is. This should not have been limiting but let me give you my list if I am ever to consider driving:SafetySpace for wheelchair, child, canes, GIANT BEASTIE wolf, a small but active hamster disguised as a pug, and groceriesA door that opens wide enough I do not have to pivotBlind spot AI to help me stop if my leg seizes and lane departure warning. Basically, any safety feature that will save me if my body decides to just not (this is where luxury gets redefined. I have no issue paying extra for sunroofs, seat material, or sound systems. These are in fact LUXURY. Back in the day, Volvo invented a 3-point seat belt. It saves lives. They gave the plans away. For safety. The ability to survive should not be a luxury. This is my hill it has a pre-dug grave and a soap box I am not moving from it.)This started with plug-ins or PHEV there were 3 on the market I wanted none to exist in real life despite the company’s best advertising efforts. Thank you all. We probably won’t be on the cutting edge of any tech but we will do our best to review what we have to make our lives as autonomous as possible from kids care (fluff feather and human) to feeding yourself, to self-care apps, to VR, to the tech we use to run Invisible Not Broken. Please feel free to reach out.Head over to www.invisiblenotbroken.com for more podcasts and blogs about life while disabled.Remember to Be Kind. Be Gentle. And of course, be a Bad Ass.

In this week's episode you'll meet Jane. She was on her way to gracing grand stages with her opera signing career until endometriosis wreaked havoc inside her body and throughout her life. Jane has been through the gauntlet when it comes to endometriosis "treatments". I use quotes there because many of the "treatments" she was put through are out-dated and ineffective. However, that doesn't stop the doctors from pushing them as if they're promising. Jane is now post- hysterectomy and wants to make it clear that endometriosis is NOT a uterine disease but in fact, a whole body disease that unfortunately remains incurable. *As a reminder a hysterectomy is neither a treatment or cure for endometriosis! It's crucial to understand that endometriosis tissue is NOT the same as the endometrial lining. This is why hysterectomies and hormonal birth control are ineffective treatments. This one distinction is where so much medical mistreatment lies and massive efforts are made by the endo community to correct this dangerous misinformation.* You can learn more about Jane and her reality living with endometriosis, follow her on Instagram here.

Mention of depression, suicidal ideation, medical trauma, sexual assault, disorder eating and other sensitive topics may come up. Please listen at your own discretion and remember this podcast is never meant to be taken as medical advice.
The stories in the It's Not Just A Bad Period Series are difficult to listen to.  And I want to keep it that way because they aren't just stories, but the harrowing realities of each warrior that is bravely taking part. Although endometriosis was first identified over 160 years ago, substantial gaps in adequately addressing this disease remains. From research being severely underfunded to outdated medical procedures still being used, this disease is a beast to live with but existing in the current medical system makes it exponentially worse! I wish I could say these circumstances only exist for a few unlucky warriors but that’s not true. This is the typical experience of an endometriosis warrior and it’s time the world hears it!
In this episode you will meet Samantha, as a passionate and thankful member of the endo community she shares how social media has helped her advocate for herself on the road to diagnosis. From multiple surgeries, a hysterectomy and hormonal therapy that exasperated Sam's coexisting depression she stood up for herself and the treatment she knows she deserves! But like most endo warriors, she was unable to escape the decade long wait to be believed. When she finally found a doctor that took her seriously she was then faced with the glaring reality that most gynecologist lack the skills and knowledge to manage endometriosis. Fed up with ineffective treatment after ineffective treatment Sam made the difficult and finically hefty decision to pursue excision surgery with an expert in the endo field. She is currently in the process of fundraising for her excision surgery, something many warriors have to do. Let's show her the love and support of Best Worst Club and donate to her fundraiser if possible. No amount is too small, donate here!  and you can do so through the link in the show notes. Without further ado here's Sam's story.
*Last week's episode (9/7/2022) was not published due to the effects from Hurricane Ian tearing through parts of Florida, where the podcast is produced. This week's episode is not sponsored and instead we're asking our listeners to consider donating to Hurricane relief efforts.

This episode is sponsored by Wilted Twig Co; It all started with a girl who loved to arrange flowers. I decided to put myself out there and open up my own business. I discovered this wonderful world of dried flowers. People really love them. I arrange fresh and dried flowers. I specialize in dried flowers and large dried flower installations. I also make pressed flower jewelry and sell at a handful of stores on AMI and have recently branched out to a boutique in Wisconsin. I love creating my customer’s visions. It’s the coolest thing to see custom floral works of art come to life. -From Courtney Cole

This series came together as a direct result of our community on Instagram. When I first put out the call to interview endo- warriors I was honestly surprised at the response. I have a small IG account and often think the algorithm works against me but our community proved to be stronger! Admittedly, the idea for this series wasn't the beginning. In fact, it wasn't until a few interviews in that I realized I am simply orchestrating something our community has been working on for years! I created the space and you stepped in to fill it with your powerfully heartbreaking and needing- to- be- heard realities of living with endometriosis. It's what the online endo- community has been doing; raising awareness of this common disease most have never heard of and calling out the systemic injustices we face! The stories in the It's Not Just A Bad Period Series are difficult to listen to. And I want to keep it that way because they aren't just stories, but the harrowing realities of each warrior that is bravely taking part.
This is Sara's story; from the beginning Sara knew how important self advocacy would be on her endometriosis journey. She spoke up and yet her voice still wasn't heard and she endure severe medical trauma along her fight to diagnosis.

In this episode you'll meet Jordan, a Colorado resident and small business owner, she shares how her endometriosis journey inspired her passion for boudoir photography. For years she was bounced back and forth from the GI ( gastroenterologist) to the gynecologist without receiving any answers. Things were happening to her body, the pain was becoming debilitating but it still took her years to hear the words "You have endometriosis". From botched excision to hearing it's because of retrograde menstruation, Jordan has run the endometriosis gauntlet! It wasn't until 2019 that she found out about Nancy's Nook (which could be an entire episode itself) and was able to access the list of excision surgeons. It was after her second excision that she began to plug into the Instagram endo- community and her people!
Follow Jordan and her photography business on Instagram! She offers virtual photography sessions and is available in person near the Boulder area of Colorado.

Could the online Endo Community be on to something? The Best Worst Club- it's the club no one wants to be apart of with some of the best kind of people.
From learning the correct definition of endometriosis to how it presents and what questions to ask my doctor, it was all because of the online Endo Community. The cyber endo- warriors work endlessly to correct misinformation and arm warriors with the proper resources needed to navigate the systemic obstacles in our medical system and society. On average it takes 7- 10 years to receive an endometriosis diagnosis and that is not for lack of effort on the warrior's part. This endo statistic is one of the most frequently touted facts because it is disgustingly true and shocking, honestly it's a complete injustice.
But what that statement doesn't cover is what it's actually like to live for at least a decade in a body that is being ravaged by a disease with no name. It doesn't explain the strength and self- advocacy it takes to be a patient in a medical system that chooses to dismiss this debilitating disease. And it can't begin to touch on the trauma of being gaslit over and over… and over again.
I often find myself saying "How can this be real?" and "I feel like I'm living in a conspiracy against endometriosis warriors.". Because once you've lived it, once you've done a little digging, the systemic problems become glaringly obvious and my activist- heart can't know these things and not attempt to do something.
It's mind blowing to me how integral of a part us warriors, the one's suffering with this disease, play in helping each other navigate the gauntlet that is endometriosis. I know that the online endo- community helped me when no doctor could diagnosis me. They helped me avoid ineffective treatments and inadequate doctors which could've made me worse. In a lot of ways I beat many endometriosis statistics because of this community, our community.
I hope that by sharing our raw and real realities it will break stigmas, dismantle misinformation and call out the systemic injustices we face. That the Best Worst Club can be an extension of the incredible work all the endo- warriors ahead of made have done.
Whether you've never heard of endometriosis, are in the grueling process of getting diagnosed or in the stages of trying to manage it there will be an episode for all of that. Because before any true change can happen the awareness that there is a problem in need of attention has to take place first!
Hit that "Subscribe" button and listen along with the nearly 200 million of us that are living with endometriosis.

The Cost of Politicizing Insulin In this week's episode, we will be speaking with Dr. Irl Hirsch about the high costs of insulin. Dr. Hirsch will discuss the struggles that people with type 1 diabetes face because the cost of insulin has increased to an untouchable point, which forces people to find alternative ways to save money. We will also be talking about the politicization of insulin costs and who's really to blame.
Dr. Hirsch received his medical degree from the University of Missouri School of Medicine in 1984. He completed residency training in internal medicine at the University of Miami, in Miami, Florida, and Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach, Florida, and a research fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
From both a research and teaching point of view, Dr. Hirsch’s career has focused on studying the best strategies for the use of insulin therapy in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. More recently, he has become involved with artificial pancreas technology and better understanding of the limitations of diabetes biomarkers. With regards to patient care, most patients in his practice have type 1 diabetes or atypical forms of diabetes. Over the years, he has been a passionate advocate for patients ensuring access and affordability for glucose monitoring technology and in the past decade, insulin. Dr. Hirsch has authored more than 250 research papers, more than 60 editorials (including the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA), and numerous book chapters in addition to six books for patients and physicians
Dr. Hirsch is the former chair of the Professional Practice Committee for the American Diabetes Association and has served as editor-in-chief of two ADA journals, “Clinical Diabetes” and “DOC News”. He is an Associate Editor of “Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics” and has been on the editorial board of “Diabetes Care”. He has also served as a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
“ …is insulin a right? Or is it a privilege? In my opinion, and for the Canadian scientists who discovered insulin, it is a right. “
QOTD: Do you buy your insulin outside of the U.S.?

History of insulin
The recent bill pertaining to insulin
Price of insulin
How to get insulin

When I got returned to school the following year, I felt different and closed off, and it became very hard for me to make friends, and I became a bit resentful that nobody seemed to want to be my friend. It made for a very isolating middle school through high school experience. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

“​​Depression is one of those things that becomes this insurmountable beast at times where even the simplest tasks are very challenging. So, if you have diabetes and depression, you could see how that could then really severely impact your overall course and diabetes. And then that ends up being this vicious cycle where the more uncontrolled your diabetes is, the more could contribute to depression, then vice versa, the more you're depressed, the less likely you might adhere to diabetes treatments.”
