FUMS 077 - Tamara Sellman: Author of New MS Poetry and Prose Book "Intention Tremor"

FUMS: Giving Multiple Sclerosis The Finger

Mar 23 2021 • 38 mins

Tamara Sellman was last on the FUMS podcast back on Episode 31 - when she was talking about sleep disorders and her professional life as a medical board-certified sleep technologist and sleep educator. It was during her training that she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

A widely published writer in the years following her diagnosis in 2013, Tamara wrote the collection of prose and poetry which makes up her "hybrid memoir", Intention Tremor, which was published in early 2021. We talk about why she writes, why she writes about MS in particular, and the difficulties of launching her first book during a global pandemic.

Topics covered in this episode include:

  • A brief recap of Tamara's diagnosis story
  • Why she chooses to write about MS
  • Tamara's unusual book tour!
  • A reading of "The Expert" from Intention Tremor
  • Details of a special gift you can receive if you mention the FUMS podcast when buying your copy of Intention Tremor
