Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You!

Monday Magic

I have found myself reading a lot of new blogs and posts recently – many that I have found through link /meet & greet parties and others through connecting on instagram, twitter etc!  It just strikes me what talented people are out there and also some pretty fantastic writers too.  Some of your poetry has blown me away.

So this week I have some very new bloggers to introduce you to along with some well established, but new to me, sites.  I hope that some of you newbies will consider looking up the Chronic Illness Bloggers network and joining us – we are a friendly bunch who communicate mainly on our members facebook page!  Details here : How to join Chronic Illness Bloggers.

So once again, grab a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy some great posts – please remember to comment and share if you enjoy them,

Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You!

Monday MagicTime for some Monday Magic!  I hope that you have all had a great weekend – I think it was Mothers’ Day in the USA, so hope all you mums were spoilt rotten.  I was asked by Evie, the lovely Zebra Mom, to take a selfie wearing red and to post it to spread the word about Vascular Ehlers Danlos Disease.  We had a very rare moment in our house and I managed to persuade everyone to do a selfie…all 5 of us in one shot!!

I am delighted to be still be finding different blogs from the Chronic Illness Bloggers community to introduce here – please remember that just because we are chronically ill doesn’t mean that we don’t blog about other things too!  So sit back with a cuppa and enjoy exploring some great blog reads with me….

Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You

Good morning and welcome to another Monday Magic with some more great inspiring blog posts for you.  I have just returned from a GP appointment and my head is spinning with the various specialist appointments I have on the agenda….endocrinology this week, cardiology, rheumatology, hip x ray and then orthopaedics…..

This is without the referrals for the kids!  University College, London where I was diagnosed no longer accept direct referrals so the kids need to be referred by another consultant.  Initially this was to be a paediatrician, but the A level student has turned 18 and the paediatric department decided that they really don’t know enough about EDS to take my lovely girl on, so she has been referred to a paediatric geneticist.  We are going to try to get an appointment for my son with the same rheumatologist that I see…….I think that we just have to go with the saying “don’t hold your breath”!

So I am going to sit down with a coffee and enjoy some tips, some yoga and some stories from some of my fellow chronic illness bloggers – if you look and listen really hard, you might spot yours truly in the You tube film from Invisible Girl!!
