I talked to my Counsellor about stigma. She said that I had only ever mentioned it in passing, and that she thought the problem had been resolved.
But the truth is, there is so much other stuff going on that I never had time to talk about stigma. So I gave her an overview of the problem in the time we had. One hour is not long enough, but I tried to explain the difficulty.
She was shocked by the incidents that I mentioned.
It was a real help to tell someone.
