I was first introduced to Nanea by a mutual friend. I hadn't heard of Sweatpants & Coffee at the time, but it turns out I was in the minority: Nanea's built an incredible mini-empire from writing about the topics and ideas she cares about...in her sweatpants. She's funny, thoughtful, and honest.
As you can see from a recent Facebook post she put up:
Nanea has breast cancer, and being connected to her on Facebook, I've admired her incredible/scary/inspiring daily posts. She in unflinching about the details, posting photos from her chemo treatments. I've learned a lot from seeing how she approaches her breast cancer.
I asked Nanea if I could interview her about what she calls her "anxiety blob" (she even has a t-shirt! I need to get it on the marketplace), and how it impacts her as she deals with cancer.
Without further ado...
QUESTION #1: Hey Nanea! Thanks for joining me for this virtual interview. How are you feeling today and what is the latest with your health? Also, are you sick of people asking you that?
