About this episode

From the outside it looked like Nicole Swiner had it all. She was a co-owner of a successful family medicine practice and a popular doctor with a happy marriage and a growing family. Then one day Doc Swiner found herself collapsed on the floor at work, wondering what had happened. It took some of the most important people in her life to gently point out that she was suffering from Superwoman Complex. That was the first time she had ever heard the term and she dove into understanding its meanings and repercussions. Nicole’s journey has had its share of twists and turns, but she is now claiming more of her own time and setting boundaries that keep her physically, mentally and spiritually happy. This is a great story of transforming a health scare into a new way of living.
