    Are You Getting ‘Stuck In A Box’ By Your Diagnosis?

    Patient advocate and friend Kristal Kent joined me, host Sharon Sayler to talk about how we can intentionally and unintentionally get siloed or put in easy-to-label boxes.’ When Kristal and I get together, it’s a free-flowing conversation about our wellness journey, the thrivers’ mindset, and advocacy.

    This time we got off on a rift about how labels and silos/boxes can hamper our wellness journey; just some of what we chat about is:
    • Moving past a siloed medical mentality,
    • Steering clear of allowing your identity to be wrapped up by your diagnosis,
    • Recognizing medical and or ‘disabled’ ‘gaslighting’ when it’s happening,
    • How this common stereotyping can harm our wellness and well-being if we don’t stay mindful of the dilemma, plus so much more…

Hope & Inspiration Lead the Way

Sharon brings such a wonder and delight to conversations. Her curiosity along with her communication skills lend themselves beautifully to guiding conversations to meaningful and relatable insights for her audience, those with autoimmune challenges, and even those who support an individual with an autoimmune disorder. But perhaps most importantly, she does so in a way that shares hope and inspiration for others to follow her journey.
