WEGO Health Writers Activist Challenge Day 14 (Favorite Health Activists, Thank you, thank you very much!)

Today is a day to thank our favorite health activists for everything they do. I think every activist should be thanked, it's hard enough living with an illness, add to it fighting for acceptance and awareness. 

I stayed with Twitter for this one. Why? I'm in a flare, a major snowstorm is hitting us again. My fingers are swollen and sore, it hurts to type. I'm exhausted, I'm not sleeping, I have been having random nosebleeds. (Calling my Rheumie on Monday.) I'm trying to complete this task in the easiest way possible, I could stop but I don't like to quit :)

Here is my list, I would name every activist if I could, these are just a few that stand out to me, each one of them have brought a smile to my face, I admire every one of them.








  1. Hi Lorna,

    Thanks for sharing this list. I look forward to getting to know some of the people you've shared. I have stayed away from Twitter a bit, just because I find it difficult to process and follow conversations - what the heck - I don't think my brain can follow anything much these days!

    It sounds like you're really suffering. I'm really sorry to hear that. Take care, and I hope you can rest up and recover some of your strength. I hope it goes well with the doctor.


    1. Hi Jane, I can't keep up with twitter either! I spend most of the time just sitting back and reading it. I found a program to put people in lists, I will have to look for it again, I have a list of people I follow who have an illness and another list for blogging, if my brain was working right now I would know the name lol

      Some days, I won't answer a tweet for a week! I'm terrible at it, all the people I mentioned are helpful and understanding, they don't mind. Now, I'm off to crawl under the covers and watch NASCAR. Something that requires not using my brain is needed today!

      Thanks for your kind words!

      Hugs back to you.


Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate all of your comments. I try to answer all of them. Sometimes life takes over and I can't get to it right away. Please don't be offended. I would love for you to leave your blog address or social media links so I can follow you or contact you. Thanks again for taking the time to be a part of my life, you are awesome!
