Hi, followers! First of all, let me say a huge thank you to all of our writers and readers for spending time on Chronically (Br)ill. This is a small, growing publication and it’s always wonderful when people spend time reading the work that our writers put so much effort into. Each and every person who has read or written a piece for Chronically (Br)ill has helped shape and build the publication and I am so grateful for your support.
It’s been a few weeks since I did a #FeatureFriday email, as I haven’t been very well and haven’t spent as much time as usual on Medium. To make up for those lost weeks, I’ve decided to do a ‘February Favourites’ summary. I’ve chosen 3 posts from this month, instead of just one, in the hope that you, our readers, can spend a few minutes reading at least one of the chosen stories. …
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope this week has treated you kindly. I managed to work a fair amount this week despite being in a lot of pain, but my god I’m paying for it now. I’m so glad it’s finally the weekend!
This week, I’ve chosen Ella Marcantonio’s new article for our #FeatureFriday piece. In a piece called “Why Falling Apart Keeps Saving My Life”, Ella describes the cycle of living with a chronic illness so perfectly that I felt I needed to share it with all of you. Please do click on it and give it a read (and some claps!)
If you want to get a chance to have your article sent out to all followers as our #FeatureFriday, all you need to do is submit an article to us and it will be considered.
Thank you so much for supporting Chronically (Br)ill!
It’s just gone 22:00 and I just woke up from a nap, because this week has been exhausting. But today I got to see a lovely friend, which is always nice. And this week, I’ve chosen that lovely friend of mine to be Chronically (Br)ill’s #FeatureFriday.
Laura Fox has written a great piece on how Social Media isn’t always the devil it’s made out to be, and actually it can actually be beneficial for some people’s mental wellbeing. …
Happy Friday, friends!
I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to Friday. I have a weekday job, and this week I’ve worked more hours than I usually do so I’m incredibly tired. Plus, the weekend means I get to spend time with my partner. In our house, we call today “Fri-YAY!” - Cheesy, I know.
Anyway, let’s get to our Feature Friday for this week!
I’ve decided to share Tammi Brownlee’s article, “The Invisible Effects Of Abuse”. I think it’s an incredibly important article and it must have taken a fair amount of courage to write it, so please try to find a couple of minutes to click through to Tammi’s article and give it a read! …
Happy new year, folks! I hope that you all managed to take a restful break over the holiday season.
It’s the first Friday of 2020, and that means it’s time for our #FeatureFriday email.
This week we have chosen ‘Grieving For The Life I Could Have Had’, a piece written by one of our editors, Rachael Woodman. It discusses the guilt that surrounds illness, a topic that a lot of people with Chronic illness or Disability may relate to. Please take a few minutes to give it a read!
Would you like to have the chance to have one of your stories chosen for our #FeatureFriday email blast? All you need to do is write and submit a piece to Chronically (Br)ill and your work will be considered! …
So, we’re finally reaching the end of another decade. This will be the last #FeatureFriday of the year, as I’m going to be away next week and I’m taking a break from Medium over the holidays to recuperate a little.
I hope you are well on this fine Friday. I say ‘fine’, but here in the U.K. it’s raining heavily— the sky is probably crying about the election result. I won’t go any further into my thoughts about that, though!
This week I’ve chosen I’m Still Fighting — Are You? by Julia Rose to be our featured article. Julia has written a few articles for Chronically (Br)ill now and they have all been fantastic. Thank you so much Julia for sharing your stories with us. …
Me and my partner moved house recently, and when we were packing up our belongings I knew I needed to sort through all of my old clothes.
I knew I had clothes in a few abandoned bags and suitcases in our spare room at our old place, but I had no idea which items were inside them. I was sure that I would sort through them and end up with just two piles of clothes: one pile to take to the charity shop, and one pile to chuck in the bin. But when I looked through the bags, I realised that the biggest pile would consist of the clothes that I wanted to keep. …
Today is our first #FeatureFriday at Chronically (Br)ill!
#FeatureFriday will be a weekly blast. Each week I will choose a story from our publication that stood out to me and send it to everyone who follows us.
This week, our #FeatureFriday article is ‘I Feel Guilty About My Daughter’s Disease’ by Tammi Brownlee. I chose this article because it highlights not only how difficult disability can be for the individual, but also how challenging it can be to be a parent or carer of someone with health problems. Thank you for sharing your story, Tammi.
I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I did. For the Chronically (Br)ill community to grow, we need to support each other. So if you could spare just a few minutes to read through Tammi‘s story, that would be wonderful. Don’t forget to highlight and clap too! …
