Bedridden with a chronic illness called myalgic encephalomyelitis [1], online media virtuoso Jen Brea is launching a new interactive video series using Google Hangout called Thrive Show [2] on how to live well with invisible and chronic illnesses.

The first episode is today, March 27, and features a conversation with Eva Hagberg [3], the author of the book It's All In Your Head [4].

Brea is the director of a forthcoming film about M.E. called Canary in a Coal Mine [5] that raised more than $200,000 on Kickstarter. She was also a Global Voices editor [6] for stories from Francophone regions until 2010.
