This is Not What I Ordered: a podcast on full-hearted living with chronic illness + health challenges

Nov 26, 2019

In this episode, I am so excited to share my chat with Natalie Enright, an Adult Services Librarian living in San Francisco. 


Natalie, who has multiple sclerosis, was first diagnosed in 2010. She attributes her early diagnosis to her husband. After seeing a decline in Natalie’s health, he encouraged her to go to the doctor without making her feel scared or overwhelmed, for which she is so thankful. Since her initial diagnosis, Natalie has not only worked to figure out how to manage and navigate her disease, but to also find the humor in the not-so-pleasant changes that come with MS. 


During our talk, Natalie discussed how her attitude plays a large role in how she gets through some of the tougher times with this condition. Two of her passions, meditation and physical activity, have also helped her to stay upbeat and focused on her goals; one of which was to graduate and start her career as a librarian. Now, as a professional librarian, her excitement for her career is palpable, and I have so much admiration for her love for her work.


I was so honored to hear Natalie’s story (and humor) during our chat, and I know that so much of what she shared can benefit many in this community. I hope you’ll tune in to hear the full episode!
