Episode 40: The Chronicles Of Arthritis
In honour of Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month, Morgan Harris comes on Take a Pain Check to talk about her story with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Diagnosed at 8 years old, Morgan discusses how she didn’t know what was happening to her body, let alone even trying to explain the concept to her friends. At 13, Morgan underwent a period of remission. Unfortunately, the arthritis came back. Morgan and Natasha discuss their experiences and preferences on pills vs injections, their support systems and some pain management strategies. The roles swap for a second where Morgan asks Natasha how she went from telling 1 person in high school about her arthritis to now running this whole podcast. Not only that, they discuss all things transition and Morgan’s experience at a transition clinic in Toronto. Lastly, they dive deep into the Patient and Community Engagement Research program where Morgan and Natasha conducted research alongside other young adult living with arthritis on patients with arthritis.
