I'm so aware reading articles and blog posts can be tiring and time consuming, especially when living with chronic illness.
I've been writing for #TheMighty for over 6 years, blogging for 8 years and had my first book published in 2022.
I love that usually when my writing is published in any form, I get feedback from some readers that it was just what they needed to read.
Sometimes that might be feedback from one person who was in a place where they needed someone to really understand what they were going through. Sometimes the posts reaonate with 100's if not 100 000's of people. I really never know what the response will be, it's so hit and miss.
My aim with my writing and patient advocacy activities has always been to reach at least one person in their hour of need. That makes it all worthwhile.
With this blog post, I'd really like to encourage you to read it if the following applies to you:
1. You feel chronic illness has taken everything from you and it's all you can think about or,
2. You feel like you are at the point where you want to do more with your life, despite chronic illness but need some help or,
3. You just feel stuck and are not sure how to move forward or what you might be capable of doing.
This post is available on my blog and on my Podcast if listening, rather than reading, is easier for you.
Both links are below.
Above all, thank you to everyone who does take the time to read and give me feedback. I appreciate it so much.
