Story Junkies Podcast

Dec 29, 2023

Kick off the new year right by listening to a conversation that Lisa and Rachel have with Susie Schwartz, author of the book "Help the Doctor Help You...31 Secrets and Tips for Self-Advocacy for Getting the Best from Your Appointments." Susie's been dealing with numerous health challenges ever since she was a young child. Through those experiences she's learned a lot about dealing with difficult and uncertain times, ultimately learning that while we can't control our emotions, we can control our attitude. 

From this discussion you'll learn strategies for gaining perspective to help you get through difficult circumstances, tools for coping with the anticipation of upcoming procedures or dreadful situations, advocating for your wellbeing and the wellbeing of those you love, and the value of seeing your doctors and other medical personnel as real people.
