Joining Finola on the show this week is inspirational health activist, pain and fatigue specialist and founder of the First Aid For Feelings social enterprise, Thor A Rain. Thor has been on a remarkable journey to coping with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and PTSD, and even against all odds, Thor embarked on a seven-year journey to a full recovery.
