Meet warrior, Samah Khan. Samah’s dream was to be a doctor. She was making her dream a reality when in her penultimate year of medical school, mysterious and chronic symptoms started. She graduated but her health issues forced her to give up practicing medicine, her passion in life. Samah spent the following years searching for her diagnosis, being dismissed by the medical profession, and managing her new reality. With persistence, Samah was finally diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, and joint hypermobile syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos, but to this day, doctors are unresolved on her conditions, leading her to suffer from improper management. Tune in as Samah reveals how redefining success for herself was instrumental in finding new meaning in her life again and allowed her to move forward as a medical editor and writer and founder of the Facebook group called PICK SEBBIE BC SEBBIE PICKS U where many chronically ill come for support. Samah also discusses the lack of proper training for doctors especially as it pertains to rare and chronic conditions. If you would like to become part of Samah Khan’s Facebook group, go to PICK SEBBIE BC SEBBIE PICKS U and send an invitation request.
