Meghan O' Rourke on the invisible kingdom of chronic illness

Season 3, Ep. 8

Welcome to the Wintering Sessions with Katherine May.


This week Katherine chats to poet and author Meghan O’ Rourke.


In a fascinating conversation with Katherine, Meghan talks about the struggles she’s endured (and endures) with chronic illness. As she mentions in the episode, there is an invisible quality to many forms of illness which makes it very hard to navigate and manoeuvre through, and we hear all about the difficulties faced when consulting with doctors, dealing with it in our heads, and living with it in the company of loved ones - but again, as you will have come to know from past episodes - silver linings and positivity floods throughout, and it’s a journey that will fill you with light and goodness.
