I grew up in an upper-middle-class family in the city of Ann Arbor. There was always good-quality food on the table and regular visits to healthcare providers. I’ve been healthy my entire life, with very few incidents of bad health. Since I lived in a suburban area, the air was clean, so I never acquired a respiratory disorder. My family also encouraged my brothers and I to do sports and exercise regularly. Therefore, my socioeconomic status and family upbringing didn’t harm my health. My other identities also haven’t harmed my health either. I’m a white, heterosexual, cisgender male, so I’m not negatively affected by the health situations and outcomes associated with race, gender, sex, or sexuality. To be honest, none of my identities have hurt my health in any way. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t me gloating or trying to sound elitist. I’m extremely grateful for the situation I was born into and continue to live in.
