“I really want to say that you have to give this an opportunity,” she told Fox News host Laura Ingraham during an interview via Skype on Monday.
“For me, it saved my life. I only can go by what it is that I have gone through and what my story is, and I can’t speak for anyone else. So that’s not what I’m trying to do here. I’m only speaking for myself,” she said.
“I did have a difficult time, even that day, obtaining the medication because of an order that was put down in my state,” Whitsett, who has chronic Lyme disease, told Ingraham. “And it was on that day so you can imagine how terrified I was that I had to beg and plead and go through a whole lot to try to get the medication.”
She explained that within a few hours of taking the medication after she got her prescription she was feeling better.
