I am a disruptive woman in healthcare.
I don’t take no for an answer.
I don’t accept second-rate treatment at the hands of doctors, nurses, or other medical staff.
I believe in health advocacy and self-advocacy. I believe in self-determination and patient-centered care.
I believe that everyone has a right to a second opinion.
I know for a fact that it’s not all in your head, or my head, and that chronic illness is a reality for millions of women in this country.
I have lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
I’m a chronic illness blogger. I blog for hope. I blog for change.
I’m a patient-advocate in the making.
And I am a disruptive woman.
Are you a disruptive woman (or man)? If not, you should be!
