#010 - Living With: Multiple Sclerosis

In this week's episode, I talk about Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (don't worry, I explain what all that means on the episode), which can affect the whole body of someone with MS from decreased mobility to being forgetful. I talk to Katrina who's been newly diagnosed with MS, but it isn't foreign to her. Listen to the episode now to hear what made Katrina think something was off, what a lumbar puncture is like, and how she's living with it now.  Katrina is also the host of her own podcast talking about all things "90 Day" on TLC.

#006 - Living With: Type 1 Diabetes

In this week's episode, I talk about about Type 1 Diabetes (T1DM). T1DM is where the pancreas isn't producing enough insulin to safely lower your blood glucose levels, causing your body to starve itself and have a dangerous level of glucose in the blood, causing many problems down the line if not managed properly. I talk to my good friend, Corey, and we talk about how he found out he was Type 1 diabetic at the age of 28 years old, how he gets glucose updates on his phone, and also what his favorite snack is for when he gets too low blood glucose levels. Websites Corey mentioned to learn more about Diabetes; www.tcoyd.org www.diabetes.org If you want to be a guest on the show, please send me an email with a short biography about yourself and what you have to;thepatientwillseeyounow@gmail.com (you can also email me letting me know how I can improve this podcast, and what you might want to hear more or less on the show as well!)

#009 - Surviving: Breast Cancer

Hey everyone! This is a different type of series that won't happen as often as the "Living With:" series, and it's all about surviving and beating certain diseases. So this will be talked about in retrospect, as this guest is no longer living with breast cancer, which is awesome I might add! So in this week's episode, I talk about Breast Cancer, and I get a little scientific about it as well, just to make the listener more aware of what's going on. I get into how the cancer grows, as well as diagnostics and treatment regimens used. I also talk about how to do a proper self-breast examination, as it is so important for women to do once a month. I also mention that men can also get breast cancer as well. Later, I talk to Kellie, who is one of the fortunate survivors of Mucinous Carcinoma, a rare type of breast cancer. She talks about her journey of getting surgery and the complication that followed, how chemo affected her new job, and an awesome haircut party she did since she wanted to make the best of a bad situation when she started to lose her hair.  If you want to be a guest on the show, please send me an email with a short biography about yourself and what you have to;thepatientwillseeyounow@gmail.com (you can also email me letting me know how I can improve this podcast, and what you might want to hear more or less on the show as well!)

#012 - Living With: Depression

I just want to give a content warning, as in the interview we mention suicide and other topics that may be difficult for some of the listeners. If you or someone you know needs help, there is always someone you can reach out to. If you're in the UK, you can call Samaritans at 116 123, and if you're in the USA you can call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1800-273-8255. You're never alone, and help is just a phone call away. In this week's episode, I talk about depression. Depression is a common mental disorder affecting more than 264 million people worldwide. However, even though it's so common, a lot of people find it a lot harder to understand then lets say, high cholesterol. I talk to Jp who has lived with depression for about his whole life, and he talks about some of his darkest moments, but also mentions some of his brighter days as well.  Jp's blog and podcast (Depressed Not Dead) can be found in the link below; https://www.jamoalki.info If you want to be a guest on the show, please send me an email with a short biography about yourself and what you have to;thepatientwillseeyounow@gmail.com (you can also email me letting me know how I can improve this podcast, and what you might want to hear more or less on the show as well!)
