GUYS! Super exciting news. I know I just took the plunge and finally decide my own podcast but I also had the amazing opportunity to be a guest on one of my new favorite podcasts, "The F-Word Podcast". I am absolutely in love with their message and everything they stand for. I really can't do it justice with my explanation so I took the words straight from their website.
"We are Jackie and Emily--two friends who decided to start a podcast to openly discuss issues that are sometimes seen as a taboo in order to create a more understanding and empathetic world.
Luckily I had the chance to use their platform to share my story about overcoming anorexia and how that fight plays into my battle with Crohn's. I have never really shared my full story struggling with anorexia on any public forum and I really wasn't sure why (I did share a bit here). I just don't think I was ready to fully embrace it until now. Well, I ripped the bandaid off and here I am. Even more vulnerable and open and authentic than ever and I did it because I have seen the power sharing your story can have on others.
Please take a listen if you are curious about hearing my story and take a listen to the other episodes as well the hear stories from other amazing people who have struggled through a variety of different issues and who are brave enough to share their stories. Every episode is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.
You can check out the podcast on their website HERE or on iTunes HERE.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback!

Sharing my raw and real journey through motherhood and navigating Crohn’s Disease. CrohnicallyBlonde is a place where I serve up my unfiltered commentary on chronic illness, mental health, pregnancy, and motherhood alongside lighter lifestyle content like beauty product reviews, travel tips, and book recommendations. My hope is that by authentically sharing my story I can help others going through similar situations not feel so alone and maybe even laugh along with me.
