'It’s okay that you’re not coping because it’s normal,’ is what broadcaster, writer and @ABCaustralia 'The Friday Revue' co-host, Jacinta Parsons, would tell her younger self about chronic illness. ‘Understanding what not coping looks like and being comfortable with it.'
Jacinta is today’s guest on our radio show Brainwaves. An ambassador for @crohnscolitisau — she will talk about mental health and her memoir ‘Unseen’.
‘When we're no longer younger and needed for procreation and hot — and all the things that give us currency, it gives us an incredible opportunity… to unshackle from something that has convinced you for so long that you're a certain person,’ Broadcaster Jacinta Parsons says.
Jacinta Parsons, also talks about mental health for women as they age in her book ‘A Question of Age’. ‘For women’s mental health there has been such a diminishing response to the reaction to systemic oppression,’ she says.
