How did you share your story?
How did you share your story with the outside world? I haven't told too many people my story. I haven't even told my whole extended family. I haven't shared it on my social media accounts. Not everyone I work with knows...
I feel like there is such a stigma around organ transplant, and organ failure, that I will automatically be cast as a failure, or a phony. I am a big advocate in the diabetes world and this is an opportunity to keep pushing for a advocacy for diabetes but also, it feels like opening myself up for let down. I am passionate about finding a cure for diabetes but now also transplant advocacy. I am just starting to navigate what that looks like, and I know I need to tell people my story and tell them what I am living through but I am scared. The "real world" does not feel like a safe space. Maybe I am crazy (well, okay, I know I am)
How did you share your story, and how did it go?
