How important is it for us to be ourselves in clinical settings? And how closely is pain linked to our sexuality? In this final episode, we talk to Sean who has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia about navigating the medical system at a young age; hear from disabled writer Sonya Huber about the connection between chronic pain and intimacy; and listen to an audio work about pain and sexuality from artist Nunzie Madden.
