Another autumn month has come to an end. It's time again to round up our three most read post submissions in October.
"I have pyoderma gangrenosum. Don’t Google it." – Claire Webber
Claire is a professional standup comedian in Seattle, Washington. In this post, she writes about living with pyoderma gangrenosum and tips on how to talk about it around people you know... with humor. Her title should really be, Laughter Therapist.
"A year has passed since the emergency surgery." – Susan Lisovicz
Susan is best known for her business journalism on TV. In 2017, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, then had a bowel obstruction, followed by colostomy surgery. Needless to say, she was totally overwhelmed. This post is an honest account of how she felt.
