"This Is Not What I Ordered" is a weekly podcast that supports people in living full-hearted lives with chronic illness and other health challenges. Host and psychotherapist Lauren Selfridge sits with guests as they share how they make meaning of what's going on with their bodies, what questions they're living with, and what it means to live a truly fulfilling life. Through laughter, storytelling, and heartfelt interviews, the podcast connects listeners from around the world as they move through their own health journeys.

"This Is Not What I Ordered" and its host are on a mission to inspire joy and fulfillment while building connection in a community that can often feel isolated in managing day-to-day life with medical conditions.

This Patreon is about more than financially supporting the podcast. It’s also a way to feel a sense of pride in the community you’re helping to shape, rally behind your loved ones, and support others who are living with chronic illness.

Successfully maintaining a podcast means a significant investment of time, love, and energy. There is also a substantial financial component, including costs associated with recording equipment, editing services, music licensing, travel, etc.

With your support comes exclusive access to videos, behind-the-scenes updates, digital goodies (like beautiful desktop backgrounds featuring insightful guest quotes), and even more connection with Lauren as we journey through our health challenges together.
