Welcome to our Mighty community. We’re so happy you’ve decided to share your story with us. If you are a first-time contributor, sign up to submit your story here. But first, please read below:

- Include at least one photo with each post. If you’d prefer we use a stock image, let us know.

- Include a brief bio (1-4 sentences) and a photo for your profile. You will be prompted to do this during the sign-up process.
- Include your home address if you’re comfortable with that. (Occasionally we like to send things to our contributors. We won’t share or sell your information without your permission.)

- Still have questions? Check out our FAQ.
Please note that we do edit stories and their titles for length, clarity and our own editorial guidelines. For example, this might mean your title will be changed or certain language will be removed. If we feel we’ve made significant enough changes or altered your original tone, we’ll run it by you first. We never want to misrepresent your voice or message.
If your story is published on our site, it may be republished in full with your byline on a reputable Mighty partner site, such as The Huffington Post or Yahoo. In this case, a member of our team will notify you upon republication.
Also, unfortunately, we can’t publish every story or blog post that we receive on The Mighty. Please don’t take us turning down a story as us saying your stories don’t have value. We have a small editorial team currently, but we hope to one day have a spot for every story we receive on the site. Your stories have so much value.
March Blogging Prompts
**These are just ideas if you’re looking for some writing inspiration.
We accept submissions within all topics!**
What is the best metaphor that helps describe what your condition, or a symptom of your condition, feels like? Explain how this metaphor works to help explain your experiences.
Write a letter to your parents addressing both what they did right in raising a child with your condition and what they could have done differently. Please keep these constructive. If you are a parent, friend or relative, make a list of questions you had when your loved one was diagnosed, the answers to those questions (if you have them), and how you came about each of those answers.
Describe a moment you were judged for something you do or do not do because of your or a loved one’s condition. How did you respond or how do you wish you had responded? What would you like to say to someone who doesn’t understand your life?
What does it mean to show love or to be loved while managing your or a loved one’s diagnosis? Describe a moment you think illustrates what it means to love while facing challenges.
Thank you for sharing your story with The Mighty!
We’re humbled to have you with us.
