Why I Started A Blog on Living Practically with Chronic Illness #chronicillness #wahm

Posted on

Living with chronic illness isn’t easy. Some days, there just don’t seem to be enough resources (or spoons, as Christine Miserandino describes them) to get through the day’s obligations, no matter how hard we try. Thankfully, there are many places we can go online for support with this issue, places where we can empathize with each other and find people who understand what we’re going through (see below for examples). This is essential to our mental well being, and I am grateful every day that online communities like these exist.What there doesn’t seem to be enough of, however, are places where we can get and share practical advice for living with our illnesses.

That’s why I started this blog. (It’s also why I wrote my recent book on migraine.)

I wanted to share with others the tips and strategies I’ve created (and/or stumbled upon out of dumb luck) to help me cope.  My hope is that they will make your lives a tad bit easier, as they have mine. If you’re not someone who deals with illness on a regular basis, but you are a work-at-home parent, a homeschooling parent, or a parent to a specials needs child, these tips and strategies also can be of use to you. I hope they are. And, if you have any tips of your own, please, please share. 🙂
