Thank you so much for rebroadcasting the interview with Ms. Remen. I listened to the program off your podcast service the day after I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. I am fortunate to live in a time when this is in no way considered a fatal disease. But listening to Ms. Remen's comments on what people look for in their doctor and what they need to heal resonated with me deeply. My worst moments leading up to my diagnosis were spent at hospitals when I was vomiting and writhing in pain. What I lacked more than anything was information and the knowledge that people were listening to me. It's not an ego thing. It's just being scared and not knowing why you're in pain. Even though it is not fatal, I have asked myself while waiting at hospitals "Why me?" I really love Ms. Remen's understanding that medical science intersects with issues of faith and love. I know my recent treatments gave me a stronger awareness of my faith. Thanks for broadc asting this.
