I can't read this without a smile on my face and shaking my head in agreement. In this three-part series our guest author, David Graham, shares his humorous take on life with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I think it also ties in wonderfully with our Effects Of M.E. awareness campaign. I hope it makes you giggle as much as I am!
Today I am excited to share Brenna's chronic illness story with you. She is a creative warrior who has been battling a multitude of chronic conditions including POTS, Gastroparesis, MCAD and many more for over a decade.
This interview is part of an ongoing series where we meet spoonie warriors from around the world who share their struggles and victories as they navigate life with various chronic conditions or invisible disabilities.
I hope this series will encourage you and perhaps help you to find answers and community. I know that many of the things which I now depend on to manage my conditions came from listening to patients with more experience. I hope that, by sharing these stories, newly diagnosed warriors will feel more supported and less alone.
In this interview series we explore how diet and chronic illness affect each other and today I have the honour of sharing Jo's story. Jo's appetite was severely affected by her mental health, but with the help of loved ones, she found a way to overcome it and get back to a place where she could once again enjoy a healthy diet.
When it comes to chronic illness, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, especially when it comes to healing through diet. It's up to us to try different approaches until we find our personal solution - the thing that our body responds to most positively.
I hope this series will inspire you to make changes to your diet too, you never know how much relief you could experience through just a few modificaitons. What you eat really can make a big difference!
Welcome to another Warrior of the Week guest interview. In this Faith Through Illness series we will meet various chronic illness warriors who'll share their faith journey with us. How does chronic illness affect their faith and how does their faith affect their condition?
This week I have the honour of sharing Heather Hancock's story. Heather is a Christian Inner Healing Coach helping women to find freedom from their emotional scars and spiritual wounds. She has a gorgeous blog where she writes about healing and overcoming through faith. I'm sure you will be as encouraged by her story as I am.
In this interview series we highlight various chronic illnesses and the amazing warriors who deal with them daily. My aim is to raise awareness as well as celebrate the many ways in which our fellow warriors overcome the limits illness and disability has placed on them.
Today I have the privilege of sharing Jodie's "A Day In My Life" interview here on Chronically Hopeful. Jodie has fought hard for years to get a diagnosis - a battle that many chronic illness warriors know all too well. She has a lovely blog where she writes about her health, her goals and victories on her road to recovery.
