When Language Runs Dry #2 A Zine for People with Chronic Pain and their Allies
44p, b&w with beautiful duotone cover by Corinne Teed, 5.5"x8.5"
This support zine, coming from activist and scrapper perspectives, deals with living with and speaking about chronic pain, illness and health issues. Pain and Health issues are often invisible, and frequently treated as dismissable, along with health resources being frequently inaccessable, especially for long-term care and this zine thoughtfully begins the multiform conversations about radically reopening the complexities of our health. One of the overarching themes here is about sustaining. Taking care of ourselves and each other and staying engaged, even when there may be no answer or resolution or recovery in sight. -EF
