#AskMeAboutMyUterus: @AbbyMNorman — #KatieSpeakShow Ep123 3/03/2018

In brief: Long overdue and just in time, the brilliant Abby Norman is back on the show — this time to talk about her brand new Nation Books release: “ASK ME ABOUT MY UTERUS: A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women’s Pain”! We talk about the struggle to get accurately diagnosed, the realities of being sick without traditional family support, what it feels like to be chronically ill at this contentious and scary time, and LOLsob through shared stories of the vast inadequacies (to put it nicely) of our health “care” system. As always, Abby is must listen and, trust me, the book is must read/listen. (That’s right — there’s an Audible version!!)

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
