Trials & Tribulations of Being Type 1 Diabetic

@kellywpa

“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.”

Hope Whispers

@kmunoz28

“I started out just to keep my friends and family up to date.  But when I started to look for others with my illness, I couldn’t find anyone.  I started writing more about my journey, hoping someone out there with Budd Chiari would find me and see that they aren’t alone either.”

Stick With It Sugar

@momof2t1s

“I blog about life with multiple kids that have Type 1 Diabetes. I blog because my brain will explode if I don’t and maybe someone with a newly diagnosed child will find something useful in my writing – even if its a giggle. What makes my blog unique? Not sure my blog is very unique – unfortunately there are so many kids and adults with diabetes that diabetes blogs are common (that is fortunate) – yet each offers readers unique experiences and/or stories of struggles that are similar to their own – therefore offering up a sense of normal.”

Thyroid Hope


 

@lojinks

“I have thyroid disease and for a while I was knocked sideways by it. Really and truly utterly lost and bereft, I couldn’t think straight, I was wiped out, my sense of self was utterly challenged, I had to give up my job. I had no idea really what was going on. It was very scary. Before I got ill I didn’t even know what a thyroid was. Now I know it’s a gland that can cause a LOT of problems when it goes wrong. Usually thyroid disease is easily treated but for a significant minority it isn’t. I felt it was important to raise awareness of thyroid disease and also to make doctors more aware of the issues patients face when they don’t respond quickly to the standard treatment. There’s a lot of information online about thyroid disease, lots of it not necessarily reliable. I  share links to medically approved information as well as writing about my journey with the illness and getting well again and I also write about a support group I have set up since starting to feel better, working with the British Thyroid Foundation. the blog gives me an outlet and lets me connect with others who may at different stages in their own journey with thyroid disease, or other chronic conditions. I know some doctors read it too and if I can make a difference to the treatment even just one other thyroid patient may receive as a result I am happy.”
