Episode 3.05: Learning to Trust Yourself with Sarah Ramey

Hello loves.

Sarah Ramey is the incredible author of The Lady’s Handbook for Her Mysterious Illness. Her book opened up a part of the world of health and chronic illness for me that I haven’t had a lot of exposure to and her story is so impactful and eye-opening.

Sarah is also a musician who lives in Washington, DC. She graduated from Bowdoin College in 2003, received an MFA in creative nonfiction writing from Columbia in 2007, and worked on President Obama’s 2008 campaign. She is also the recipient of a 2018 Whiting grant.

In this episode, Sarah shares her experience with having her life turned upside down because of her mysterious illness, why it’s so important to have a community that understands you, how she’s been able to turn difficult family relationships into positive sources of support, and so much more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • Why writing her story helped Sarah reclaim the narrative around her mysterious illness
  • How a traumatic urological procedure triggered an avalanche of horrifying symptoms for Sarah
  • How Sarah found her community of people with mysterious illnesses
  • The problematic way many doctors treat patients with mysterious illnesses
  • The approach Sarah used to build a supportive relationship with her physician parents
