August is joined by Cory Martin, author of the award-winning memoir Love Sick, to explore dating, sex and learning to thrive when you have a chronic disease. Cory was 28 when she was diagnosed with MS and now sees her journey with chronic illness, which also includes lupus, as a gift. Dr. Megan Fleming weighs in for a listener who has a rare form of arthritis and fears chronic pain will hinder sexual pleasure and intimacy with her newfound love. Thankfully, there are workarounds and orgasms can bring pain relief! (Science proves it.) Learn more about Cory Martin’s work at corymartinwrites.com.
