Welcome to the 86th episode of the Give A Heck Podcast!
Join Dwight Heck and his guest Barby Ingle as she shares how her early experiences as a child with chronic illness made her want to fight for awareness and made it her life’s advocacy to acknowledge the illness.
At an early age, she was told that a person with her disease will definitely not reach college only to have that principal apologize to her as she graduated high school. This is just one of the many wins that she had to power through because of the constant disregard that she experienced from the professionals that were supposed to help her achieve anything.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Barby’s experience with the lack of awareness of chronic diseases
  • How she defined her own normal
  • Why what other people say is not as important as what you can do
  • What Barby educates the people about chronic illnesses
  • Importance of using every available resource to learn and get help
  • And much more!

 

 

About Barby Ingle:

Barby Ingle advocates for all people challenged with a chronic care condition involving chronic pain as well as their family, caregivers, healthcare professionals and the public. One in three people (116 million)  in the United States are affected with a condition that causes pain, so it is bound to affect you or someone you know. But until you feel the pain it is difficult to understand all of the challenges it brings on. Whether physical or mental, pain can and will consume you if you allow it to and only the patient can begin the process of healing! Barby’s hope is that her speaking engagements and books will inspire other people’s eventual transformation filled with HOPE and motivation.
