Thank you Jessica for sharing your story - Stigma crushing starts with people like you who are brave enough to be a champion - you are an inspiration
You were so inspiring and I learned so much. You were such an excellent resource for everyone. Our conversations during and after your presentation showed that everyone was so touched by what you shared.”
How do you crush stigma?
Stigma is shame and fear.
Stigma is embarassment and silence.
Stigma is by far the worst plague I have ever experienced.
I crush stigma by telling my story,
By busting out the science,
By finding humour in the darkness
By being vulnerable and strong
By being remarkable, not perfect
Jessica, you are a Rockstar and your presentation reminded me of attending a Jann Arden concert, because I was literally laughing and crying in the same breath"
