Hi, I'm Dr. Sabrina Nichole Crouch, host of the podcast "F*ck Being Stuck". I was inspired by my own journey to healing chronic pain using meditation. This podcast spotlights the unrelenting women who went from managing to mastering their health challenges, and the badass alternative practitioners who are changing the way we heal.
In this episode, Rebecca Mass-Krajewski, a healthcare detective, shares the irony of her journey to uncover invisible chronic illnesses diagnoses for her patients, while also highlighting the importance of validation, boundaries, and a team approach to medical care.
Validation is the next day. I see a lot of tears. I see a lot of the productive version of ranting, because to me, you’re telling me the stories that I need to hear.
