Radio Story: Side Effects by Katie Peabody


  1. Oh, I remember this story SO well! I listened to it at least two or three times. I LOVE the intersection of storytelling and medicine.

  2. This story had a huge impact on me. I’m still stunned! It calls so much into question. “Entenmann’s Chocolate Donut” is now a phrase that brings perspective! Thank you, Katie Peabody.

  3. Your story was told very well and I can honestly say I didn’t see the end coming and I have to admit your story put a lot of things in my life into perspective thank you.

  4. WOW. Does the Mind rule the body or the body rule the mind?

  5. I see folks in the comments have never suffered from serious mental illnesses before. Hope this person realized that medication is actually a life changing, life saving substance and that acting ‘happy’ doesn’t correct chronic chemical imbalances.

  6. Great story! I can relate as I almost convinced myself one night that I was surely having a heart attack.
