Do you love learning about various chronic illnesses and disabilities? Me too! I may have a lot of knowledge about Spina Bifida but have very limited knowledge about other chronic illnesses and disabilities because I don’t have them. Disabled bloggers and chronic illness bloggers are not experts on all conditions but are only experts on their condition so we can always learn from our peers. If you are looking for some new disabled or chronic illness bloggers to follow here are a few bloggers that I would definitely recommend you check out!
Karly Joy- If you have been reading my posts you probably know that Karly and I are friends in real life but besides us being BFF’s she also runs a disability and lifestyle blog about her experiences with Muscular Dystrophy. Karly and I have done a few collabs together so if you enjoyed them I am sure you will probably enjoy Karly’s blog but don’t take my word for it head on over to karlyjoy.com and see for yourself.
A Chronic Voice- I found A Chronic Voice through the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network and was immediately hooked! Living with a chronic illness can be tough and can sometimes cause depression. This website provides encouragement and support for chronic illness sufferers struggling with depression. You are not alone! If you feel unhappy because of your chronic illness and need some encouragement I highly encourage you to stop by Sheryl Chan’s blog at https://www.achronicvoice.com/ you won’t regret it!
Chronic Illness Bloggers Network- If you are a blogger that has a blog focused on a disability or chronic illness then you need to join the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network! The Chronic Illness Blogger’s Network helps disability and chronic illness bloggers find opportunities and of course helps grow their blog. My blog has almost doubled in size because of this Network and the amount of people who I have met through it is not something I could have done on my own. No worries if you aren’t a blogger you can still visit the public Facebook page and find tons of articles about various disabilities and conditions. If you are interested in expanding your knowledge about different conditions consider visiting the public Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ChronicIllnessBloggers/ (yes I do contribute to this page I wouldn’t recommend something I was opposed to doing or didn’t contribute to )
Migraine Mantras- I used to contribute to the Migraine Mantras as a full-time blogger but because my blog has grown so much I had to step down. When I was a full-time writer I felt so much love from everyone on the team at the Migraine Mantras so if you are suffering from chronic pain or migraines or just need to chat I would definitely consider contacting someone on the team at https://migrainemantras.com/ because they are always open to chat! It almost makes me sad that I had to step down because I felt so much love when I was writing for the Migraine Mantra’s but I know it was the right thing it to do.
Beverly creator of http://www.bloomingmindfulness.co.uk/ shares her experiences with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, ankylosing spondylitis, Depression and General Anxiety Disorder. I am all too familiar with chronic fatigue anxiety and depression so sometimes I may write about them but you will never see me write about these other conditions because I am unfamiliar with them. If you’re like me and have very little knowledge of these other conditions why not give this blog a read you may learn a thing or two!
Reclaiming Hope- Before I started blogging the only thing I knew about Fibromyalgia was how to pronounce it correctly and that it was an invisible disability but that was pretty much the extent of my knowledge. I don’t need to have extensive knowledge about Fibromyalgia because I don’t have that disability so I never went out of my way to learn more about the condition. If you don’t have Fibromyalgia or don’t know someone who does chances are your knowledge on the condition is very limited so why not head on over to https://reclaiminghope.blog/ and expand your knowledge on Fibromyalgia and maybe make a new friend!
Michelle Munt- After getting into a car accident Michelle Munt suffered a brain injury that forever changed her life but instead of sitting around feeling sorry for herself she uses those experiences to help thousands who also have been affected by a brain injury. If you need support or just would like some guidance after a brain injury I would highly encourage you to check out https://www.jumbledbrain.com/ you may find some very useful information that may help you.
A Balanced Belly- Jenna the creator of a Balanced Belly has had Crohn’s disease since 2013 so she created this website as a resource for those who have IBD and other digestive conditions so they can live their best life. Jenna not only strives to bring accurate resources but also shares her life of living with Crohn’s disease so if you have the condition and feel like you hit a brick wall feel free to check out https://www.abalancedbelly.co.uk/ this may be the resource you’ve been looking for.
There are so many other disability and chronic illness bloggers that I follow and there is no way I could possibly put them all in one blog post. These are only a small fraction of people who I follow and I am always finding new people. If you ever want more disability bloggers or chronic illness bloggers to follow don’t hesitate to ask because I would be more than happy to give you some recommendations. Chronic illness and disability bloggers if I have linked you in this post and have gotten your information wrong or you would like me to add anything about your blog please feel free to contact me. I tried very hard to make sure that everything in this post was correct but no one is perfect so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is an error. Do you follow any disability or chronic illness bloggers?
