NHBPM – Doing My Own Prompt Today – Chronic Illness Links

Welcome. This post is part of the WEGO Health National Health Blog Post Month (NHBPM) challenge for November, 2012.

I must admit, I am not feeling any of the prompts today. But, I still want to try and do a post each day this month so today’s post is a collection of chronic illness articles.

Two University of Toronto students, Alex Levy, 25, and Aakash Sahney, 22, have created an app that gives a voice to people with disabilities. As the article states, the app helps a variety of people.

“Users include young people with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, autism and muscular dystrophy as well as elderly people affected by strokes, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, aphasia or other conditions.

Natasha Tracy of Breaking Bipolar has a video where she gives some suggestions on becoming an empowered patient and having the conversation with your doctor on becoming an empowered patient.

The BBC has an internet radio show and a blog about living with a disability called Ouch!

Disability Horizons is an online magazine. Their vision from their about page is:

To create a positive, interesting and useful disability related magazine with articles and resources to help disabled people achieve whatever they wish.

The Lovers’ Guide has a variety of articles about sex and disability. It’s an NSFW educational site that has articles about sex and relationships that also has a sex shop.

MedicinePlus has two articles to help those of us with chronic illness, whether we are starting our journey with chronic illness or need a gentle reminder about things we already know. They are Living with a chronic illness – dealing with feelingsand Living with a chronic illness – reaching out to others.

Happy reading!

    1. Yes, only 17 more posts to go. And think up. And write. Actually, I have about 8 left to do. Once I get the prompts, I start working on them. I couldn’t do it otherwise. And it gives the ole brain a chance to work those brain cells. Brain fog doesn’t stand a chance…at least for this month.
