A Solution To A Serious Problem [ Guest Post ]

Today I’d like to share a guest post from John to introduce his brand new project. He has recently set up online platforms to serve as a community space for those with fibromyalgia and migraines. He also asked me if I’d like to contribute to the latter, which I have as I think it’s a wonderful idea to bring people together and provide support.

By John

Within the chronic illness community, I’ve noticed a pretty devastating problem.

Out of the millions of people that suffer from chronic illness, many of them aren’t as fortunate to be a part of a community of supporters like Invisibly Me.

Beyond support, a lot of sufferers are discovering that their voice is getting lost.

It’s getting lost because the Internet is crowded and it’s getting lost because they don’t know where to share.

To me, this is a very, very big problem.

Anyone with chronic illness can attest, without a shadow of a doubt, that going through it alone is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody.

That’s why I created a platform to hopefully eliminate that.

A place where anyone can post, comment, share, and discuss their chronic illness. A blog that’s built by the community for the community.

So far, I’ve only created one for Fibromyalgia (link here) and Migraine (link here). More still to come, I promise 🙂

So if you have tips and tricks that you think would help others, or want to tell your personal story, I urge you to post it.

I even had the pleasure of receiving a post from our very own Caz of Invisibly Me. Here’s a link to her blog post here: My Experience with Migraines.

P.S. this website was launched VERY recently, so please help spread the word by sharing on social media.

    Having support is ever so important. I hope your sites grow and are a blessing to those that visit.

    Have a fabulous day, Caz. ♥

    Great idea John, how to keep the community together and growing is your challenge. There are several “communities” on WordPress but not all are outreaching. I look forward to hearing more about your strategy. I know with Caz by your side you have a great mentor.

    • May 20, 2019 / 4:11 pm

      Aw I don’t know about a mentor but that’s very kind of you to say! And it really is a great idea, I’m sure John will be glad you like it too!xx

    I think given people with chronic illnesses a further possibility to share their thoughts is a very good idea. This lessens the burden a lot.

    • May 20, 2019 / 4:11 pm

      I agree, it could be a wonderful way to share and feel less alone with people in a similar boat. Thanks for the comment, Viola xx

    Wonderful Idea I do support!

    • May 20, 2019 / 4:12 pm

      You & me both, it’s a great idea! I’m sure John will be glad to see so many people are in favour of it. Cheers, Darnell 🙂

    An excellent initiative by John; and who better to assist than you, Caz.

      Aw that’s very kind! John will be pleased to read so many people like his initiative too 🙂
      Thanks, Carolyn. I hope the week ahead treats you well xx

    Great initiative for a great cause. Keep it up!

    • May 20, 2019 / 2:08 pm

      It really is, glad you think so too, Nisha! 🙂

    I like your idea it’s better to support and to have someone’s support is amazing it helps a lot.

    • May 20, 2019 / 12:40 pm

      Absolutely, support can be a wonderful thing. Thanks for your comment, Naveen 🙂

  8. May 20, 2019 / 2:17 pm

    This is a great initiative. When I was really struggling and searching for an online source of support, a platform like this would have been exactly what I needed. I wish you every success with it 🙂

    • May 20, 2019 / 3:26 pm

      I agree, it really is a great idea. Thank you for the lovely comment, I’m sure John will appreciate the best wishes! 🙂
      Have a lovely week ahead, Sandra xx

    I agree that the internet is saturated and so is the blogging world but it’s good to have a place to share.

    • May 22, 2019 / 3:53 pm

      It is saturated but I don’t really see it as a bad thing, it means more options, more connectivity and more voices. Thanks for reading & the comment, Alice! 🙂

    John is right that voices are louder when they’re working together rather than at random as singles. But still I think it’s great that more people are speaking up, no matter where they do so xx

    • May 22, 2019 / 3:51 pm

      I agree, together makes more of a statement but every individual voice, anywhere, counts. Thanks for the great comment, Christy! x

    Great idea! I can’t wait to see how it grows, John!

    • May 23, 2019 / 5:05 pm

      I’m interested to see how it develops & grows, too! 🙂

  12. May 23, 2019 / 10:04 pm

    This is so important. I’m glad there are resources, and I’ll be looking them up, for sure. xoxo

    • May 23, 2019 / 10:07 pm

      It is important, so it’s an interesting project John’s undertaking! Thanks for the comment, Kymber – Hope you’re having a good week so far 🙂
