Really appreciate the autoimmune series

I just discovered your series and I have been on a 2 year journey to find out more about my autoimmune issues and to get a diagnosis. Thank you for doing these sessions. Really helpful and supportive.

New Listener

I found your episode about having an undiagnosable autoimmune disease so helpful. It is so easy for me to go into panic mode wanting to figure out what is wrong. I really appreciated your perspective and listening immediately made me feel calmer about this whole situation. Thank you
