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.”

 



Caregiving Cafe Blog

@CaregivingCafe

“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

@ConquerLupus

“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

@serenebutterfly

“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.”

@sapphire20

 




Sunshine & Chaos

@sunandchaos

“I have an inner ear disorder with disequilibrium each day. The ENT doesn’t know specifically what the cause is and can’t give a specific diagnosis. This difficulty is what led me to start blogging. It has helped me to “meet” others in a similar situation as myself, to see what information I can learn from others and to help others, even if it’s only “You’re not alone”.”

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.”

 



It was Lupus

@superdillin

“I blog about health because of my own experiences living with Lupus and several other chronic conditions.  I want others to be made aware of the things that I’ve discovered through trial and error, and research.  The support of the Chronically Awesome community online is amazing and I love being a part of it!”

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.”



 

Debbie Norman

@dorkydeb

“I run several different blogs. I plan to split my posts across my blogs, but post at least one post per day. What makes my blog(s) unique? Well… I have multiple medical issues, my husband is a nurse, and our youngest child has autism. So I often see things from the point of view of the patient, the medical professional, AND the caregiver. I am stubborn and I fight hard for myself and others. I believe in remaining hopeful and keeping a positive attitude!”

 


 

Kamie in Wonderland

@kamieleigh

“I blog about my health because it is a way to release my fears, my pain, my hopes, my dreams, and my desires for the future.”

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.”
