On Episode #64 of That's So Maven Podcast, we're chatting with Cassie Johnston from Wholefully all about how she started her blog, her diagnosis of Lyme Disease and how things have changed since receiving her diagnosis.

Thank you so much for your kind words on last week’s episode. I know this past week has been tough for many people and mental health has been a huge topic of conversation (as it should be) so I’m glad the episode could help educate and hopefully encourage you to seek out your own support.

Speaking of which, this week’s guest has spent the last year seeking out her own support system. Cassie Johnston, the blogger and entrepreneur behind Wholefully started developing some strange symptoms last summer. After many months of tests and new symptoms, she was finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease. It’s been a long road since then.

  • Buying their hobby farm and why that was the right choice for their family
  • The challenges that come with owning acreage and why it isn’t right for everyone 
  • Her diagnosis of Lyme Disease and what her initial symptoms were
