Trials & Tribulations of Being Type 1 Diabetic
“I have several complications from diabetes. I write about my health because I struggled for a long time trying to figure out how to manage blood sugar while dealing with gastroparesis. I wanted to be able to share the things that I have learned with others. Although there are a lot of bloggers writing about diabetes, not very many of us are writing about our struggles with complications.”
Caregiving Cafe Blog
“I blog about caregivers taking care of themselves on every level: physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. The work that we do is so important, as caregivers are literally the lifeline for so many chronically ill, disabled or fragile seniors. Caregivers experience joys and trials as they provide compassionate care for their loved ones. Often, they are also raising a family and working. They deserve recognition and support from family, friends and community.
My blog is unique because I provide links, resources, information and support that come from organizations involved in caregiving, wellness or healthcare. I also present a caregiver’s honest perspective. I provide an inside look into caregiving and encourage caregivers to reach out for assistance in order to avoid becoming patients themselves. Reach out, don’t burnout!”
Conquer In Spite Of
“When I first got Lupus, I was very lonely. And the few blogs I could find on the topic didn’t feel relevant to what I was going through.
Conquer In Spite Of is a unique Lupus blog because I try to keep a positive attitude and I try not to let myself get into that “tragedy” mindset. I try to share the hope and the happiness and I try to find ways to relieve symptoms and live healthy and happy.”
My Brain Lesion and Me
“I blog about my health condition, as neurological conditions are often very misunderstood as is invisible illnesses in general. So I feel it is important to raise awareness of conditions such as these and the effects that it can have. My blog is unique as my condition is unique!! Not many people have the condition and the symptoms are not understood and so the blog raises awareness and also aims to educate the wider public.”
