Stigma and bullshit. The two biggest impediments to talking about my diagnosis. No, let’s just call out the bullshit, for the stigma is largely a result of the misinformation associated with it.
Googling the condition results in a shitstorm of bullshit, from awful photographs to sensational articles by people with agendas of their own. That’s why it’s honestly so hard to talk about.
I make no apologies for bad language here. I rarely swear, but this bullshit warrants an exception. Hopefully I have emphasised my point now. The stigma is hard enough without all that crap.
