Episode 58 – Stephanie

Stephanie Tait talks lyme disease and the way the surrounding controversy hurts patients and building a life around your fluctuating limitations.

I’m Brianne Benness and this is No End In Sight, a podcast about life with chronic illness.

So first, of course I want to tell you that I have a new piece up on Medium about grief and chronic illness called The Grief Keeps Coming. Grief is something that comes up so often in these conversations – including in today’s episode – and I’m really trying to find relatable ways to talk about it. If you’re interested, you can find it by heading to my Medium profile at medium.com/@bennessb. And yes, the at sign is necessary.

And of course, here’s a quick reminder that I have a patreon campaign, which is a really simple way for listeners to support the show financially on a monthly basis. So if you’ve been enjoying the show and you also have a couple bucks to spare, I’d be so so grateful if you’d sign up as a patron at patreon.com/noendinsight.

This week I’m talking to Stephanie Tait about lyme disease and the way the surrounding controversy hurts patients and building a life around your fluctuating limitations.

Before we start, here’s my disclaimer:

This podcast is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Make sure you talk to your practitioner about any questions or symptoms.
