Dismissive Doctors & Crafting your way towards Hope (Part Two)

Wednesday, 7 June 2023 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm
Tash is a thirty something year old caucasian woman with short blond hair, red lips and wing tipped eye liner with a colourful tattoo on her shoulder, she is standing side on looking over her tattooed shoulder and smirking directly to the camera.

We are thrilled to have Tash join us again today, for part two of her interview with Brainwaves host, Flic Manning.

In the previous episode (which you can replay on the 3CR podcast page) we touched on Tash's harrowing experience with dismissive medical professionals while dealing with a complex illness; and the depths to which this affects a person's mental health. Today in part two, Tash shares her experience of finding hope through crafting, and shares her tips on how to navigate mental health when you become chronically ill or disabled.


‘There are a million, million invisible stories such as mine out there, and lonely and disconnected voices that go unheard every day. I am almost in a state of disbelief that my tiny unseen story is going to be heard,’ says Tash who lives with chronic illness and disability. Tash is also a self-professed ‘natural born scavenger and manic multidisciplinary crafter’.


Pawnsuburbia is the name of her second hand and handmade crafts store (including jewellery and upcycled garments).
