In this podcast released by The YEAH Council (Youth for Education Advocacy and Healthcare) young people discuss something others may not understand, what it’s like to have a disability or special healthcare need while trying to live life as a youth. In this episode, YEAH members Emma Parcells, 16 at the time of recording, living with CRPS, Pots and other diagnoses and Martin Harvey-Olson, a 16 at the time of recording living with Lyme Disease discuss the various ways that their conditions effect their day to day lives. This episode was facilitated by Karin Harvey-Olson and recorded by Jennifer Pineo. (Transcript: YEAH, My Differently Abled Life)
