Every once in awhile, we invite a health expert on the show who is also engaged in the arts. While medical science is the language of facts, research, data, diagnosis and treatment, the arts is the language of the heart. And when we combine the language of medicine with the language of art, we round out our total human experience to combine factual knowledge with emotional, social, and spiritual content. We have the pleasure of speaking with a practicing physician who expresses herself in the language of poetry. She has just published a book of poems titled “A Doctor Only Pretends – Poems about illness, death and in-between.” Dr. Abby Caplin also lives with a chronic health condition which inform her work as both a physician, patient, and poet. In this interview, we hear about the transformation those with chronic illness can achieve in transcending their physical pain and discomfort to understand what their higher love and purpose is in the world. And we get the added treat of understanding this through the art of an award-winning poet. Enjoy the insights you will glean in this show. You can reach Dr. Caplin at and purchase her poetry book at
