Award-Winning Author, Kat Harrison, Uses Storytelling to Prove That You Are Never Alone in Life With Chronic Illness
Award-winning author, chronic illness advocate, and community producer for The Mighty, Kat Harrison's mission is to show people that they are never alone in life with chronic illness.
Despite struggling with a debilitating balance disorder, oscillopsia, which has made her vision bounce since the age of 15, Kat dove headfirst into life.
Kat started as an editorial writer in NYC but has recently authored two children’s books on chronic illness. Her first publication was the award-winning, Surgery on Sunday, and her second (and my favorite), Migraine and Mia.
Today’s conversation covers Kat’s diagnosis story and what it was like to be saddled with a debilitating chronic condition. Kat gives invaluable insights on how to cultivate empathy, strength, and determination in life with chronic illness. Finally, we cover why Kat decided to write about chronic illness for children.
Kat's story is one of true inspiration and an example of what you can accomplish when you refuse to give up. It was a pleasure to spend time with Kat and I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
