The 1step2life Podcast

1step2life: For those living with chronic pain and the people who love them.

Honest talk for people living with persistent pain, chronic illness long COVID or other complex medical conditions. Dr. Nancy Darling is a psychologist who studies adolescent parenting and the mom of a son with severe chronic migraines.

Living with chronic pain or illness shrinks your world, limits your social life, and makes even small things an effort. We discuss information common to folks living with chronic illness. Many of our podcasts are for caregivers – particularly parents – who support people who live with pain.

These podcasts grow out of the 1step2life.com blog.

We are available through five platforms through Anchor.
