Stigma, internal and external
/

Join us for episode 3 of Chronicles! In this deep dive about stigma, we first explore external stigma – insensitive comments or frustrating situations we’ve dealt with as others have responded to our or our family’s experiences. We also reflect on internalized stigma – how we’ve let other’s perceptions of our limitations impact us in the decisions we make or how we push ourselves to “fit in”. Throughout the conversation we share advice we have for each other, medical professionals, and the wider community on how to address stigma and create safe spaces for people living with chronic illness.
