Patient Name: Kirsten
In this week’s episode, Cara talks to Kirsten Schultz of the blog Not Standing Still’s Disease about her rare condition, Still’s Disease, and where it fits into the picture of autoimmune arthritis. They both make statements in response to last week’s Planned Parenthood attack, and they talk about growing up sick, blogging, what Kirsten hopes to do when she finishes her masters degree in Healthcare Administration, learning to be nice to ourselves, and PTSD.
You can find a written version of their statements about Planned Parenthood, as well as sources for the information Cara referenced here.
