Women What Whistle

This podcast is about not falling in line or fading away. Stories of bravery, accounts of resilience and even tales of sheer bloody-mindedness. It’s about finding our voice, and sometimes our brave, through the stories of other women who’ve had to find theirs.

Dec 3, 2020

This week we hear from Emma Simpson, scientist and writer, wife and mum, and someone who experienced multiple traumas over a short period of time that turned her life inside out and resulted in her developing clinical depression, followed by chronic fatigue syndrome and a mast cell disorder.

In this episode we hear Emma’s devastating story, about how she has learned to deal with PTSD and grief, about depression, anxiety, about over achieving, pushing away pain and the eventual breakdown that would see everything rise to the surface.

If it wasn’t for Emma’s friends and family, she says she wouldn’t have made it through. This is such a real and honest tale of how life can change overnight and that the only way through, is by taking one step at a time.

You can find out more about Emma on her website, and breaking news, she has a book coming out later in 2023 which charts her journey with grief - it's beautiful, really. Also if you want to know more about The Winne Mabaso Foundation she mentioned, take a look here

Finally, the fabulous quote she shared with us is:

Ego says “once everything falls into place, I’ll find peace”

Spirit says “find your peace, and then everything will fall into place”
