I’ve been told I share too much.
Each week here on the blog, and daily on the Facebook page, I share my experiences. I talk about making healthy meal choices, attending yoga classes and what I’ve been doing for self care.
I share pictures of my skin issues, talk about biopsy results and encourage both men and women to do breast exams. (PLEASE, do them!)
My outreach is purely based on wanting to live a healthier life and inspire others to do the same.
So, I educate, inform and SHARE. And, no, it’s not always easy. I often linger with my finger hovering over the publish button. I wonder if my editors will question my article proposals. I wait for pushback from family and friends.
But, overall, the reception has been incredible. My readers love having someone they can identify with, so I will continue my outreach.
Someone with health problems doesn’t have to have a wheelchair or leg braces. Their conditions may be invisible (unless you have X-ray vision).
Someone who does yoga can be curvy and use blocks as props.
Someone who eats gluten free can have cake, bread, crackers and cereal.
Someone who has chronic illness can still experience joy.
Some who battles health issues can have a career.
If you find that others judge you based on things they don’t understand, offer to answer their questions. Let them know how you’re feeling, rather than keeping it bottled up inside.
Be honest with yourself.
Until next time,
