Episode 54 - My New Mentality
On this week's episode on Take a Pain Check, Charlotte Ryder-Burbidge discuss her diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Celiac Disease. She was diagnosed away from home during her studies. Luckily, she discusses how she had great housemates during that time that supported her. Natasha and Charlotte both discuss the differences in being with their parents when receiving a diagnosis vs not being with them. They both relate on the struggles of studying science while dealing with hand pain and inflammation. For Charlotte, that lead to her feeling the need to skip classes and not care about school for the longest time. On the other hand, she also developed other lifestyle changes such as going to the gym. As the conversation continues, they both discuss their experiences on triple therapy and the side effects they've experienced. Finally, the episode ends off with talking about Arthritis Research Canada's patient advisory board where Natasha and Charlotte first met.
