Show Notes

Colleen Steckel went on a camping trip years ago, and started to feel ill. She was pregnant at the time, and thought that was the cause. Or maybe she has the flu. Decades later, she still suffers... Colleen is an activist in the myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) community, and was later also diagnosed with POTS. She is a member of the Board of Directors for ME-International.org, and brings hope as she describes both diagnosis and treatment options for people with ME.
