I was helping someone who got sent to the ER by her doctor, and I witnessed one of the most ridiculous cases of stigma in a medical setting that I have seen in a long time.
It was from a medical tech who made the Assumption that this sick person’s illness had something to do with a mental health diagnosis.
I have to say that I haven’t been that angry in a really long time.
It was also just upsetting to witness because, let’s face it, that could have been me.
Grrr. Still angry.
