I suck. (Yes I’m self-deprecating today)

I haven’t blogged for an extended period of time. Sadly this comes at a time when I have also applied for a scholarship to the Stanford Medicine X ePatient conference (thus – if you are with the Medicine X scholarship department please see older posts and know that I am a serious ePatient but just swamped in the last couple months).

Thankfully WEGO Health is about to begin the yearly Health Activist Writers Month Challenge (HAWMC). It begins April 1st and you can joy the fun by clicking HERE.


The writers month challenge helps keep me on task. Laundry, PTA, Primetime TV, and naps will take second chair to writing each day because I love a challenge.

If you have signed up or do sign up to participate you have or will be sent a list of prompts. When or if you have received your prompts you might notice my blog address on a few. First I didn’t realize WEGO would ever consider using any of my suggestions or that they would share who suggested the prompts if they did. Second I may have sent those suggestions in the middle of the night, sleep deprived, high on Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs (no not HIGH like in blood sugars – I have a functioning pancreas – High as in a self-induced peanut butter chocolate euphoria).

Let me just say this – if you find my suggested prompts inspiring, fun, or imaginative – great it was totally me. If not – clearly my email was hacked.


I hope to see many of my blogging friends participating and I hope to meet a great number of new friends through HAWMC. Some of my favorite online peeps are those I met during last years HAWMC both in the diabetes online community and other chronic illness communities.

Good Luck and I’ll see you in the HAWMC.

  1. I really, really, really, really want to give this a go, but I\’m scared. I barely have time to go to the bathroom these days, how can I write a coherent blog post every day for a month?


    1. LOL – the great thing about HAWMC is WEGO doesn’t send the police after you if you fail to post. I suggest giving it a try. The prompts are great way to get creative juices flowing. Last year I missed a day or two and just made them up when I could. When you sign up you will get the prompts and you could start writing now and save them as drafts. You could also write more than one a day if you have time and schedule the extras to post on the appropriate days. It’s really all in good fun – plus you could write in the bathroom thus maximizing your time.


  2. I saw your site mentioned in the prompts for HAWMC. I thought I’d visit before things got started.

    This will be my first year participating. I hope I’ll be able to keep up.


    1. Thanks for stopping by. I didn’t realize my blog address was gonna be shared when I sent in ideas. If people like the prompts I will be glad and if means I get to meet new people because of it I will be even more glad. I’m off to check out your blog. Cheers and good luck.
