Here’s some articles and interviews that I’ve read and heard recently and I wanted to share them with you. While some of the links deal specifically with vestibular disorders, anyone living with a chronic illness can relate to the information that is being shared.
Marissa Christina is the guest on The Big Web Show. It is an audio interview where she talks to the hosts about living with a vestibular disorder and the hurdles she is facing while living on disability and trying to become a web designer. She also wrote about it on her blog called Abledis.com where you will also find the link to the interview.
Many of you know Lisa Copen as the founder of Rest Ministries and National Invisible Chronic illness Awareness Week. Lisa has written an article called 5 Tools to Cope With Invisible Illness to “help let go of some of the frustrations” of having an invisible chronic illness.
Those of us with chronic illnesses know that weather can affect not only how we feel but our health. These articles from CBS MoneyWatch.com and The Weather Network help explain how weather contributes to migraines, pain and loss of concentration.
Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) has an article called Observations on Cognitive and Psychological Aspects of Vestibular Disorder. It is excerpts from interviews with a social worker, an otolaryngologist and a neuropsychologist. While it deals with how vestibular disorders affect people psychologically, I believe that anyone with a chronic illness can see themselves in the article.
