Emily Ann Peterson, the founder of The School of Bravery, a learning lab for creative visionaries, talks to Monica Michelle on the chronic illness podcast Invisible Not Broken about Essential Hand Tremor , Hypothyroidism, her career as a cellist and her new life as an author of Bare Naked Bravery, podcast host, and coach.

What is your disorder? *

Essential Tremor & Hypothyroidism, seasonal depression sometimes too.

At what age did your disorder become a daily issue? *

24

Who were you before your illness became debilitating? *

More energetic

What would you do if you were not dealing with your invisible illness? *

Same thing! Just more of it!

What would you like people to know about your daily life? *

When I cancel an appointment, it's necessary.

What would make living and moving in the world easier for you? *

Slower pace from everyone else.

Do you have any life hacks? *

Yes! Naps! and automating EVERYTHING! and contingency plans!

What kind of support do you get from family or friends? *

I've got a couple great girlfriends ready for a text convo anytime!

How has your invisible illness affected your relationships? *

I can't be as outgoing on my "bad days."

Does the fact that your disease is invisible change how healthcare professionals treat you? *

Sort of? I'm overweight, so I get those lose-your-weight talks all the time, but the weight is related to living with a low thyroid for so many years. Ugh, so frustrating.

What is your best coping mechanism? *

Naps. Seriously.

What are you the most concerned about and the hopeful for in the future? *

Concerned that the rest of the world doesn't know how good life can be at a slower pace. Concerned that those with invisible illnesses discount their potential to achieve the same things others without illness achieve.

What is your favorite swear word?

FUCK! ;-)

Is there anything you want to make sure we talk about during the interview? Like an organization you want to promote or something specific that you deal with.

I founded the School of Bravery, where I teach my clients and students how to make their bravery as friction-free as possible. It's my mission to help people know that bravery CAN be easy if we foster an environment for it!

What is the hardest and/or best lesson your condition has taught you?

I am not what I achieve. I am not what I do. I am.

What is the best purchase under $100 that helped your life

Software. Seriously. The right software can automate the most difficult things in life.
