I Love My Phone!! It’s My Chronic Illness Lifeline.

For those of us with Chronic Diseases, who are disabled to a point where getting out and about is difficult, our phones can be our lifeline. Many of us can no longer work and have given up exciting and rewarding careers because of our health. Connecting with others through blogging, writing, managing or participating in online support forums, provides opportunities to connect with the wider community, in a meaningful way, from our homes or hospital beds.

My Writing Year In Review

As Christmas and year end comes around, I’m in a reflective mood. It’s been a great year for me from a writing perspective.

My Medical Musings

AUTHOR 2017 -J

This week I’ve had the pleasure of participating in the Annual RA Blog Week. It’s a wonderful event for bloggers from around the world to share their insights on what it’s like living with Rheumatoid Arthritis & often other associated autoimmune diseases.

Each day of the week a topic is chosen for bloggers to write about. On the last day of the week we are asked to highlight some of the great blogs we have read during the blogging event.

This year I can’t choose. I was really impressed with the varying writing styles & insights that each blogger brought to the event.

So, I’ve decided to highlight & applaud everyone 😊

Below are the topics for each day of the week. If you click on the topic title for each day it will take you to the most inspiring & awesome blogs.

The Joy of Journaling

That’s certainly been my goal with blogging and writing articles for a number of publications, including The Mighty and  Blogs by Christian Women. … Continue reading The Joy of Journaling
