Episode Info:

An entire book can written about it. And maybe followed by an entire series. How women feel about their bodies has had us thinking about the topic since forever. The media, the mirror, sometimes our own mothers and our minds have told women what they should look like, what they should eat, what they should wear and how they should behave. And that's when everything is going according to plan. 

No one has accounted for times when our bodies rebel against us. Too many women suffer in silence because their friends and family don't make the effort to understand their ailment. Because, as one woman puts it, the medical community fails them. Because women's health and wellness isn't given as much priority as it needs. 

Ayesha Aleem speaks to three women who cope every day with complex health conditions. These are brave, honest stories that I hope will encourage everyone to love themselves more, to be truly grateful for what our bodies do for us each day, which we often take for granted. And that these stories will remind us to pause and pay attention when someone might be silently calling for help.
