Whether you live with mental illness, dementia, a physical disability, or even incontinence, you are bound to face varying degrees of stigma when encountering the greater population. I believe much of this stems from the underlying (and usually unrecognized) read that many people have that this could happen to them or someone they love. In my opinion, the best way to battle this stigma is for brave people to go public with their challenges and show others that we are the same people with or without our disease or injury or simply a different way of functioning.
