Have you or a loved one have ever been undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or had doctors dismiss your very, very real symptoms? That's medical gaslighting. It's harmful and all too common.




No matter how much you like a certain doctor, how much you trust them, how highly recommended they are, or even if they're said to have the top credentials in the world, I think that society as a whole could use a dose of trusting doctors slightly ...

Stress. Never heard of it?


I'm totally joking because we all know about regular-schmegular stress, but what about Eustress? Or pre-traumatic stress?
