This episode is truly amazing awareness! One of my favorite parts is this quote from Alice.
"Yeah, malignancies, and I ended up seeing twenty-two doctors before I was diagnosed, but in my case I also had reproductive health issues. So when you say how can it affect you, I had a full-term stillborn child, I had three miscarriages, and my youngest daughter was two pounds when she was born. So she fit into the palm of my hand. I’m five foot nine and I weighed a hundred and thirty pounds now. I was down to about a hundred pounds. My hair was falling out, my teeth were breaking, and the doctors were telling me that I had postpartum depression and telling me I had psychiatric problems, you name it, anemia, so a lot of this — I had, you know, swelling in my joints. I had such diarrhea that I couldn’t even go to work."
