Pushing Limits

Pushing Limits – Adapting To It: Repetitive Stress Injury and Other Painful Life Occurrences.

Meet Margherita Gudenzi, a woman with RSI who, with help from a local non-profit, parents a young and active child. Meet Gary Karp, a wheelchair user who feared for his hard-won independence when he contracted RSI.  And, meet Andrea Hill who doesn’t let the pain of
fibromyalgia keep her from caring for 4 children while finishing a college degree. They talk to
hosts, John Healy and Adrienne Lauby, about what they’ve learned to improve and what they’ve learned to accept.
