Tweetable Quotes:

“I know that how you’re treated affects your baseline stress levels. And that affects how your health plays out.” (02:06) (Dalia)

“For most people that I come across I really have to focus on empowering them to set boundaries and to feel confident in not listening to your healthcare provider like they are this all knowing person you must look up to and obey everything they say.” (08:14) (Dalia)

“It’s important to have a support system and, if at all possible, someone who can help you navigate those spaces while you’re down. Because if you’re really sick, you probably won’t have the bandwidth to handle these battles on their own.” (13:15) (Dalia)

“As companies pop up that specifically want to serve underserved people and we take our money and leave the places that have been beating us up, I think that will get people to really look at changing. Some people have no moral compass and the only way to get them to change is to punch them in the wallet.” (14:19) (Dalia)

“I think moving through the last four years helped a lot of people realize that there’s no pay off for us not showing up one hundred percent as ourselves.” (20:36) (Dalia)

“I don’t really believe you can live a full, well-rounded life if you always have to hide.” (34:56) (Dalia)
