How to survive the really tough stuff with Liz O'Riordan
Jul 19, 2019 Episode 4
Rachel Morris

In this episode, Rachel is joined by award-winning Dr Liz O’Riordan, the ‘Breast Surgeon with Breast Cancer’, TEDx speaker, author, blogger, triathlete and all-round superstar who has been nominated for ‘Woman of the Year’. 

We chat about what it’s like to receive a devastating diagnosis as a doctor and how hard it can be to be a patient. We talk about our own unrealistic expectations and knowing your own limits. We also chat about how our expectations of ourselves are very different if we have to take time off for other health-related reasons such as stress or depression. 

Liz shares how she coped when things got really tough and gives some great, practical advice. 

Since this podcast has been recorded, Liz has been awarded first prize at the BMA Medical book awards for her book co-authored with Trisha Greenhalgh ‘The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer’. Congratulations Liz!
