Dudes and dating
Perfect Valentine’s Day episode! As a pediatric epileptologist living with epilepsy, Dr. Ingram has a unique perspective—and one that doesn’t get a lot of attention: being a male living with epilepsy. He shares struggles he faced that never occurred to us, like being a teenager and unable to pick up a date from her house…because he can’t legally drive.
Dr. Ingram addresses societal expectations that men face (like being the tough guy), how these are heightened when dealing with a chronic illness, and how to show true strength by rejecting those standards.
