Patient name: Sofie
CW: eating disorder
In today’s episode I talk to Sofie about her experience in the Norwegian healthcare system as a patient with complex chronic illness. We talk about her experience trying to find a diagnosis that fit her symptoms, how EDS is classified and treated in Norway, and our complicated relationship with weather.
In today’s bonus episode, we talk a little more in depth about the interplay between chronic illness and eating disorders, and about the ableism present in many diet communities.
