WEGO Health Writers Activist Writers Challenge Day 25 (Learning)




Share something you learned from another Health Activist (that everyone should know!).


The number one things I learned from other Health Activists is to stand up for myself and let my voice be heard. Who is better qualified than me to be my own advocate. When I started out I didn't know what the term meant, wait! I knew loosely what it meant, I didn't know I was considered one myself.  

Here is the definition from  WEGO's site

"What is a Health Activist?
Health Activists are leaders who work daily to improve the way people talk and think about
health. If you are sharing your health story and helping others live better lives you may already be a Health Activist. Health Actvists are passionate about raising awareness for health causes, dedicated to finding the best information about health conditions, and relentless in their
commitment to help others. They are also adept at using every tool possible to reach their communities, especially through social media."
I know a lot of people who fit this description perfectly, they are my heroes! I hope that by
sharing my story, it helps you as much as others sharing have helped me. 
I have learned about others health conditions, what they do to get through each day. Reading other people's blogs has taught me to have more fun! I have laughed more through this challenge, than I have in months. I spend a lot of time editing my thoughts to keep my page family friendly, it feels like I suck the life and fun out of some of it. Maybe I should be more like some of my fellow bloggers and write exactly what I think. Their pages are so much fun! (I said maybe!) Don't unfollow me!
