You have a right to agency.
You can make the decisions about your health. You can take actions to maintain or improve it. You have a right to access information, resources, and support. You can make choices about healthcare needs. You can advocate for yourself in the healthcare system.
Too many times now I’ve heard of people being dismissed by professionals when they’ve had concerns, or even a lack of concern.
COERCIVE CARE IS NOT CARE.
Advocate for yourself. Find professionals who not only listen, but believe you. You are the expert on you. Don’t pay for services or support where you are belittled, ignored, or dismissed.
You are the expert on your life experience.
