Introducing Two Very Special Ladies,With Very Special Stories

Hi Everyone,

I’m really excited to introduce my new Podcast interview series.

My first two interviews are streaming now and I’m so happy to be able to share them with you all.

Nik Watson – A Life With Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Nik Watson, is my dear friend and co-administrator of my FB Group, Medical Musings With Sam. Nik’s love of life, warm personality and inspiring story of living with Lupus from the age of 10, and then later also diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis as an adult, is one not to miss.

Here’s the links to Nik’s story: Nik’s Story

Shannon Moss – An Incredible Story of A Scary Sudden Diagnosis of Intracranial Hypertension, Plus A Broken Heart!

Shannon Moss, is my beautiful daughter in law. Her story of a sudden, scary diagnosis of Intracranial hypertension and necessary brain surgery, is incredible. She also openly shares her story of being admitted to a psychiatric ward, due to a broken heart following the death of a loved one. There is a twist to that story too, a twist that saved her life as a serious congenital condition was discovered. Shannon was a delight to interview and is a delight to listen to.

There’s More To Come!!

I’m also interviewing another dear friend and work collaegue this week. I am so looking forward to sharing the story of this amazing lady, who lives with a benign brain tumour, has conquered bowel cancer and so much more, all while working at the top of her field as a successful Leader in financial services. Stay tuned for this inspiring interview next week.

In the meantime, I know you will enjoy listening to both Shannon and Nik, as much as I enjoyed interviewing these two beautiful ladies.

(Remember you can listen to these interviews on Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts and all major Podcast apps)

Thanks for reading and listening. I so appreciate you all!

  1. What a fantastic idea to showcase these two incredible ladies. That twist for your daughter in law is bittersweet. I’ve heard of similar before – how awful it is to experience an illness or accident, but then to find it actually saved your life… that’s some strange kind of fate right there. xx


  2. Hi, I also have Intracranial Hypertension. I’m so sorry that your daughter in law has this condition too, it’s a hard life. I’ve had 3 brain surgeries and 3 skull and spine surgeries for mine so far but still need more.
    However, thank goodness that she had the silver lining of it saving her life! I hope she’s doing okay and has found one of the many amazing support groups (I’m about to listen to your podcast now). Thanks so much for shining a light on this rare disease. As an IIH Warrior this is one of my most impassioned subjects I raise awareness for so I really appreciate your contribution to the cause! 💙💚


    1. Hi Laura, thank you so much for your comment. Shannon will be delighted to read it too so I’ll pass it on to her.

      I’m so sorry your journey is such a difficult one with this awful condition.

      I’d love for you to keep me posted on how things go in the future for you. I’d love for you to do a guest post with your story if you feel up to it anytime.

      Take care
