I was thrilled to be invited as a guest on Amber Tresca's About IBD Podcast. While I don't personally live with IBD, we talked about how the experiences of chronic illness patients have so much in common - regardless of the actual diagnosis - particularly when it comes to parenting with a chronic illness.
Amber asked me to share how being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis led to starting my blog, From This Point. Forward, which eventually led to the patient advocacy work I do today. It was my own experiences with pregnancy and motherhood that lead to creating the Mamas Facing Forward Facebook group and this website. We also chatted about how challenging life in quarantine can be, and I shared my plans for Stay Home Summer Camp - the first menu will be posted on Friday, May 22nd! I hope you'll take a listen!
