Episode 67 - The RA-lity Of Lupus
In honour of Canadian Mental Health Week and Lupus Awareness Month, tune in to this week’s episode as Krissy Stephenson, a successful business owner and chronic illness warrior, shares her journey of living with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Lupus. Krissy discusses the challenges of finding a good rheumatologist who understands the complexities of her conditions, her medication journey, and her experience with pregnancy and RA. Krissy also introduces us to the Spoon Theory, a powerful metaphor used by those with chronic illness to explain their limited energy each day. She talks about how she allocates responsibilities as a mother and entrepreneur and discusses her mental health journey with a therapist who also has Lupus. Join us as we explore Krissy’s inspiring story of perseverance, hope, and resilience, including her experience as a kindergarten teacher and her successful Direct Superior Hip Replacement surgery that changed her life.
