As we delve into February’s theme of “Health Activist Matchmaking” – our first Health Activist Tweetchat of the month will focus on something that is discussed by (and important to) just about everyone: relationships.
Relationships are hard work – but when you add a health condition, a diagnosis, treatment, symptoms, or other health-related complications to the mix – there is even more to manage. When living with a health condition (or caring for someone who is) – how does that impact your relationships? Where do conversations about your health fit in and how do you take it on without letting it take over?
Join us tomorrow at 3pm on Twitter to discuss these topics in our #HAchat:
- You and your condition (How do you feel about your condition? How do you keep yourself going?)
- You, your condition, and your significant other (Whether you’re single, dating, married, or otherwise – this is a juicy and challenging topic!)
- You, your condition, and your friends/family (How do you start conversations with friends and family about your health? How do you handle their questions/concerns?)
- Talking about relationships and your condition in your health community (What advice do you have for fellow Health Activists and patients wanting to start a conversation about relationships and your condition?)
Since this is the Health Activist Tweetchat – we’re going to keep the conversation focused on a Health Activist level by sharing what we’ve seen and done online and also by gathering ideas and suggestions for fellow Health Activists to bring back to discuss in their own individual health communities. No matter what your condition of focus may be – there is a bunch of content just waiting to be unlocked. Let’s dig in to the idea of “Relationships and…” and extract some inspiration from our chat.
So we’ll see you tomorrow at 3pm ET here: http://tweetchat.com/room/HAchat#
And, if you’ve discussed this topic in your blog or community – I’d love to see what you had to say! (Link us in the comments.)
