Patient Name: Erin
In this week’s episode storyteller and senior producer of The Story Collider podcast, Erin Barker, talks about her experience with Interstitial Cystitis and Vulvodynia, some of the the uncomfortable social situations her condition has put her in, being the weird girl at work, and the magic of Botox.
In today’s bonus episode we talk about podcasting and sharing our stories, Erin's work with The Story Collider and The Moth, and the somewhat unorthodox relationship she developed with her faith during some of the darker times in her experience with IC and Vulvodynia.
