Ep 45: René the Broken: Part 2 of my Hospitalization

Click here to listen! 

My official diagnosis was Guillain-Barré and this episode discusses what that means. I also talk about the how I learned to walk again, and I can’t confirm or deny it was due to the frustration of “advocating for my self”.  If you’re an occupational or physical therapist, I will always love you.

Boundaries is a topic that comes out often in both my personal life and private practice. It’s not something we have a class about, but its something that could possibly save our lives. They can come in different types such as rigid or loose, but the goal is to set heathy and appropriate boundaries so that we can continue to grow in an empowering way.
