Radio Interview Experience

The radio interview went VERY well! Kim Iverson (radio talk show host) and I discussed episodes, her personal experience with mental illness through her mother, and how family reacts to one suffering an illness.

I shared how I realized that something was wrong after a nurse contemplated with me that I was sick because I had been to the emergency room several times for not eating and I was not taking care of myself; showering or even moving! Kim's mother had an episode and Kim was forced to drop out of college to take over her mother's business while she was sick.

The interview was for about seven minutes. I felt really good about sharing my story and the interview overall. Thank you for everyone's support on this event!

And a special thanks goes to kim Iverson and her radio staff for having me on the show and for allowing me to share my story. Thank you!
