Thi’s stigma story

November 20, 2020

Thi reflects on her experiences disclosing and discussing her condition to the various people in her life – including friends, family, and co-workers.

The reaction from her peers has been of positivity, support, and curiosity. She highlights the fact that there is no need for people living with viral hepatitis to disclose if they don’t want to. However, simply talking about it with people you are comfortable around and trust can be very beneficial.

“In the end your feelings towards yourself are more important than other people’s feelings. I am a human being, I am not hepatitis B,” she says.
