On the ‘Ladies First With Laura Brown’ podcast, she said, “It was so intense and overwhelming. I didn’t know how to deal with it at all. And I also didn’t know how to really communicate very well to be supportive. ” Systems or to my friends or family.
“I lost a lot of weight because I was being examined very carefully, and I was so stressed and drained that when you see pictures of me, it’s like seeing someone under duress.”

And he was what the first person in my corner who really said, ‘Oh, but you can do what you want.’ He really became a mentor to me, I feel like he still is.
