I’m new here!
Hi, my name is Dmjhop.
I love this quote because it reminds me I can still have a full life despite my mental and physical chronic illnesses. It's about focusing on what you can do and putting the things you can't behind you. You can do almost anything if you're willing to try. Keep fighting! #BipolarDisorder #FamilialMediterraneanFever #Anxiety #Depression #Quotes #InspirationalQuotes #Inspiration
My name is Scott Ninneman, and I’m the man behind the Speaking Bipolar blog. Living with both Bipolar 1 and Familial Mediterranean Fever, chronic illness is more than something I write about - it’s my life.
I spend my days wrestling numbers as a bookkeeper and tax preparer and dedicate much of my nights and weekends to creating online content for my blog, Medium, Vocal, and The Good Men Project. Besides writing about living with illness, I write about personal development, writing tips, poetry, and short stories.
I am honored to be joining this community and to know that The Mighty will soon publish my first story. I look forward to getting to know everyone in the years to come.
Until next time, keep fighting!
Has anyone used a professional assistance dog trainer in the Tri-State Area (within an hour of Philadelphia) that they can recommend? We were working with Libby Rockaway but she just moved out of the country (and she specializes in DADs and we need a mobility/dysautonomia assistance dog).
We already have the dog - we just need the trainer. #assistancedog #RareDiseases #Dysautonomia #Fmf #FamilialMediterraneanFever #MobilityAssistanceDog
I was diagnosed about 8 months ago after symptoms started at age 36. The doctor that finally figured out what was wrong doesn’t really know what to do and I’m in Oklahoma, so there aren’t many options. How have you guys found doctors familiar with FMF?
I am grateful for...
1. My family, for being my rock and my support system
2. Axl, my 3 y/o Doberman
3. The Mighty, for allowing me to express myself
