Heartsick, the debut book from author and podcaster Jessie Stephens, follows three stories of heartbreak—the kind of heartbreak that upends a life—and puts words around a brand of grief that we, as a culture, do not respect enough.
This Relationship Doctor mini-series, “The Beginning of the End,” is inspired by Heartsick, but tells entirely new stories.
Since writing Heartsick, Jessie has been flooded with unbelievable accounts of heartbreak, the kind of stories that make you gasp and feel sick and wonder how that person managed to pull themselves back together.
Here, over three episodes, Jessie tells us three stories of heartbreak. Because, it turns out, it is in these moments when we feel the most alone that we are our most connected.
