  1. I just listened to the podcast with Dr Jolene Brighten. When I was into it about 3/4 of the way, I began to weep 😭!
    I could resinate with everything she was discussing and I just felt so overwhelmed!
    I have had the diagnosis of UC, Hypothyroidism, and Hashimoto’s for a number of years. I will be listening to this one over and over because I too was feverishly writing notes as she spoke and I just want to absorb everything she said.
    Thank you Sarah for all the research you put in and for finding awesome people to speak on your podcasts! 🫶🏻
