While grappling with disease the last thing you might be able to think about is how you can help others, but once you've got your bearings, lifting someone else up because you genuinely want to, ends up being the greatest gift to your health.
This episode deals with the surreal moment you first hear the words of your diagnosis and takes you through a few ways to move through your new reality. It also features some of the sounds of Toronto traffic. The latter wasn't ideal, but this journey is about working with what I have.
I'm super excited (and nervous) to put this out into the world. I'm sharing my story because when I was so sick that it hurt to think and had doctors doing all kinds of procedures and tests on me, I would have done anything to know that someone out there was facing Wegener's Disease and living a full life. Please note, you'll hear the effects of this disease on my airway as I take noisy breaths before I speak. I let this hold me back for too long. So here I am, Darth Vadar voice and all!
