It is somewhat uncomfortable sometimes, but I pretty much tell anyone. I don't bring it up out of the blue, but I try hard to treat it like any physical condition, if it happens to come up, or especially if someone makes an inappropriate joke or disparaging remark about MI. I also will mention my therapist and therapy sessions, just as if those appointments were for an allergist, or chiropractor or physical therapist. I keep private why I go, but speak about 'the fact' I go as if it's routine...because, for me, it is, and I want them to get this message.

It isn't easy, and some react if as I've said something awful, mumble, change the subject, ignore me. And this can can make me feel badly, but that part gets easier with time and practice.

It's okay, it is *their* issue. I force myself because I truly believe this is the only way to normalize these things in society. By these small interactions, bit by bit.

Tiny drops (e.g., of education) can turn into a puddle which becomes a pool which becomes a pond, a lake, and then an ocean.....
