A Surgeon Ruined My Life, Living in Chronic Pain with Anjelica Marsh
If you are curious about working with me one on one, I work with individuals, athletes, and couples from all over the world. Head over to www.nicobarraza.com to inquire more.
This week's guest is Anjelica Marsh. She is a school counselor who was a collegiate softball player that had a ankle injury that led her to a surgeon that would change her life forever.
Unfortunately there are just as many mistakes in medicine as there are healings. Anjelica shares her personal story of how a botched surgery changed her life and left her in chronic pain. I share my own story too and together we chat about the difficulties of living in chronic pain and navigating the medical mal practice legal system, as well as being your own best advocate in a healthcare scenario.
Here is a link to the article that I stumbled upon that made me want to interview Anjelica on the show http://anjelicasmoments.org/2020/04/13/to-the-doctor-who-ruined-my-life/
Here are a few more writings of hers
For many people who suffer from chronic pain it can feel like you are trapped in a jail cell in your own body. Especially when the pain was caused by the same system that should be alleviating physical pain. I hope this episode gives you some sense of community and leaves you feeling connected, seen, and not alone.
I hope you find the answers you need to feel better and to feel at peace.

Colby lost his wife Emily to metastatic breast cancer and this conversation is mostly based around how they navigated that time and their experiences living as a family and traveling full-time with their kids.

Excerpts from this weeks guest Jillian Tuchman's website below!
ARE YOU TIRED OF BEING TOLD YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE ALL “IN YOUR HEAD”?
Do you feel overwhelmed and anxious about what you can and cannot eat?
Do you want to feel good and normal like everyone else?
Have you been dismissed so frequently that you’ve lost faith in finding a solution?
It's time to start feeling better.
It's time to use your sensitivity as your superpower.
...that those who feel deeply and are more sensitive to every aspect of life have a greater tendency to develop food intolerances, gut and bloating issues, chronic pain and autoimmune conditions.
These issues can knock other parts of us out of balance leaving us overwhelmed, in pain, tired, confused, depressed, not knowing what to address first and how to even begin.
And then we're told we’re too sensitive every time we seek help.
I understand you, because I AM you.
Nutrition and lifestyle adjustments are only one part of the equation -- we must work together in a safe, trusting container to assess the mental, physical and emotional root causes that contribute to your anxiety.
So you can finally feel like the best version of yourself. And live life with more presence and calm.
Through a functional medicine approach, we’ll address the root causes of your symptoms, so you have less anxiety, more energy, greater focus and clarity, improved digestion.
Holistic health is whole-person health and in our work together, we’ll address every aspect of your wellness from the food you eat, to your daily routine, to how you navigate sleep and stress to how your thoughts affect your digestion.
You will finally feel like YOU.

One of the fist episodes I listened to introduced me to Vanessa Bennett. The conversation about codependency was a game changer and led me to sign up for Vanessa and her partner, Dene's, retreat almost two years ago! so safe to say Nico's thoughtful and curious conversations through his podcast has impacted my life! This pod also introduced me to the great Jillian Turecki! Highly recommend giving it a listen!
