We start by discussing a few of the treatments we are currently on and how much work it took for us to get these treatments going. This gets us into our discussion on why we, as patients, have to advocate for ourselves and how to even go about doing that.

No one cares about your health more than you and even when you are sick, you have to be the one to take charge of your situation. We share our experiences, per usual, along with some practical tips for advocating for yourself.
Today's topics:

  • Trust and believe in yourself
  • Don’t settle, don’t stop
  • Self-care
