It’s been a while! On this episode, we talk about surgeries in relation to disability. How much “improvement” is worth having a surgery for? What if you don’t want a surgery but have to? We dive right into these hard questions. We also talk about Seasonal Affective Disorder, which we both agree is the most...

We have wanted to talk about disability and parents on this show for a long time. Specifically, the dynamic between an able-bodied parent and a disabled child.
