It’s been a long time since my diagnosis. So much has happened since 1994. We have some so far with research and awareness, yet it still feels like I’m stuck in the mud in Alabama like a mash-up between the movies Ground Hog Day and My Cousin Vinnie.
I have decided to sit out the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge, and read as many blog posts of those who do write, as I possibly can. There are some great voices out there and I really want to take the time to hear what they have to say. I feel like I haven’t been as active as I can be in the health activist community. And not everyone can or even wants to write, so I am going to participate by reading and cheering on bloggers and encouraging others to read by sharing what inspires me.
I am not the only person with scleroderma, sarcoidosis or any chronic illness to have something to say. There is a time for everyone with a voice to speak out. There is also a time to listen. This is my time to listen. I just want to fall in love with some more bloggers. I have read and shared several posts this month already and I am starting to feel inspired by these new and not-so-new voices.
So, there will be posts here, but please visit Wego Health or search #HAWMC on Twitter and read some great blogs. Don’t just read what I share. I can’t possibly read them all and if you find posts that inspire you, I hope you will share. We don’t all need to blog, but we all need to encourage those who do. So, show your support and if you haven’t already liked Wego on Face Book or are following them on Twitter: Go now & do!
