This month I am once again joining WEGO Health National Health Blog Post Month. For thirty days bloggers will post on the topic of the day. Today's topic is:
Day 1 – Thursday, Nov. 1
“Why I write about my health”
“My favorite thing about social media / the internet / online health communities…”
I chose to write about my health. You can follow the bloggers on twitter with #NHBPM #HAWMC or join the FB event.
Why I Write About My Health?
I write to share with other's the up's and down's of menopause and fibromyalgia. I suffer from both. I'll soon be 52 and I have to face the facts, I am no longer a Spring chicken. I'm a Winter hen. My bones creak, my fingers ache with each keystroke I take, my body longs for the Spring.
It's not easy living in this 52 year-old body, but I make due. I have no choice. It's all I got!
I could bitch and grip about my ailments, but I use humor to make light of a bad situation. I can't take drugs(my system can't handle any form of drug). So I bummed about that. I don't smoke, don't drink, and don't party...so here I am a worn-out, broken down 52 year-old woman who rants and raves about my health.
Menopause and fibromyalgia are serious and by no means am I making fun of those two conditions. I'm poking fun at myself because I have nothing better to do.
