Chasing Your Dreams While Fighting For Your Health | Trust Me, I'm Sick Part 2


You can’t always tell from the outside when someone has a chronic illness or disability. In “Trust Me, I’m Sick,” we want to uncover the struggles, triumphs, and life changes that people with invisible illness experience. Ezra , Giuliani, Henriette, Matt and Cassandra share intimate stories about how Lupus, HIV and other chronic health conditions have helped shape their relationships, careers and expectations for the future.
