Issue #222: A Good Psychologist Should be on Your Healthcare Team Right from the Get-Go & Resources for Coping with the Summer Heat | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 17 July 2020. Issue #222.

In this issue: Start with one simple, achievable task and momentum usually builds from there – and other tips for motivation when you’re unmotivated. I advocate for a good psychologist to be part of your healthcare team right from the get-go, and even for caregivers and family members. Life is a succession of moments, to live each one is to succeed. Glad that Singapore is so strict on mask wearing, and the differences with the US. The Uninvisible Pod features podcasts on people who live with chronic illness, caregivers and experts, plus my interview there. When you live with invisible illness people assume you are okay and ask for more than you can give, hence the importance of saying ‘no’. There are so many ‘isms’ that exist, one important one of which is ‘ableism’. When doctors don’t believe in Fibromyalgia despite seeing four different ones, and men’s health in India. Coping with summer heat when you live with chronic illness and POTS – koldtec towels, upping salt, water and mint tea intake, blisslet bracelets for nausea, and more. It’s not okay to be rude, but it’s important to speak up when you need help and are in pain.
