Health Talk 05 Navigating Invisible Illness as a Young Adult: conversations on Lupus & Black voices
About Health Talk
Living with a chronic condition can feel isolating. Health Talk by Flowly was born from wanting to bring often isolated voices into the fold, and connecting different ideas, experiences, and tools to your own health journey. We talk to health practitioners and chronic health patients to deconstruct the chronic condition journey— from how many have managed the challenging diagnosis experience, to new tools and tips that might help you. We cover conditions including chronic pain, anxiety, autoimmune diseases, and more. Hosted by Celine, the founder of Flowly, this weekly podcast will dive into conversations with world class researchers, practitioners, and even more importantly, chronic condition warriors themselves.
You can also find Flowly Health Talk on Apple Podcast and Spotify.
In this episode, Celine chats with an amazing young chronic illness warrior from North Carolina. Bella McCray is an advocator for Lupus, a member of Autoimmune Sisters, and a Lupus patient herself. Bella shares her experience with Lupus, her diagnosis story, and even how her identity as a young Black woman has shaped how she’s had to manage an invisible illness.
