I've just started the second phase treatment of MS, and by listening to this podcast, what pops in my mind is that all of these phases are possibleity not certainties and I have the power to change and cure myself in my own unique way and this chronic disease is not my identity and there is always more to explore🙂

Jordan! IF min(you talk) > min(guest talks) THEN it's not an interview! I enjoy listening, but it's frustrating when you ask 5 minutes questions and give the guest 30 seconds to respond. Please work on this!
