This is an Encore presentation of Episode 63 and one of my favorites from earlier in 2022. My guest was Shari Short, a comedian, writer, and, naturally, a developmental psychologist working in healthcare communications. Since her MS diagnosis in 2008, Shari has used humor to deal with MS, communicate about MS and cope with MS.
In this episode, we talk about how Shari got started in comedy, her diagnosis with MS, her experiences of loss during the COVID pandemic, and why sometimes it can be ok to embrace the dark humor.
