Connect With Others
Many people who are diagnosed with PBC find it helpful and meaningful to connect with the PBC community. Discussing and hearing from others who share your experiences can offer an outlet and a bond that inspires hope and confidence. There are different ways to make that connection, including engagement with patient associations. Others find comfort in peer-to-peer dialogue, something that can take place in a variety of forums, such as at in-person regional events and support groups.
Being part of the PBC community can provide a sense of togetherness, no matter how you decide to connect. This unity can inspire you, provide companionship throughout your experiences with PBC, and help strengthen the community voice to raise support and awareness for this rare liver disease.
