22. Akilah Cadet, Advocating for Herself As She Searches for a Primary Diagnosis
By Harper Spero
Akilah has been diagnosed with pericarditis, coronary artery spasms, and orthostatic hypotension, but she’s still searching for a reason why she’s experiencing intense and chronic pain on the left side of her body. On today’s episode, we talk about how why she no longer thinks of her health journey as a temporary bump in the road, why she decided to start talking about her health with clients, and how she advocates for herself, despite the bias she encounters as a woman of color, so she can find answers.
