In Episode 5, which we did actually do (eventually) despite suggesting Anna might not be able to just stick at something for ten seconds at a time, we talked about what it means to know stuff about your illness. When you have a chronic illness, you can become pretty familiar with some of the jargon, and that can have an impact on the way you’re perceived as an unwell person, especially by professionals.

We also talked about how to care about someone with social anxiety, cost effective ways to seek mental health care, and a secret makeup tutorial YouTube channel that Erin and Anna are definitely* going to start.

Also, probably listen all the way to the end on this one. There’s a treat there. You can just fast-forward if you want.
