  1. It was really interesting to hear your story, and glad you joined Chronic Illness Bloggers where you can meet lots of people who are “out” with our chronic illnesses. I invite you to check out my blog; http://PatientsRightsAdvocate.com . I am trying to get laws changed so that patients will not be blacklisted by medical systems and have some real recourse if they are abused in these places. Me and a friend have created a petition where we’re collecting signatures and personal accounts that are auto-forwarded to Secretary Sylvia Burwell of Health and Human Services Committee, US Congress. Here is the link to that if you or any of your friends are interested in a worthy cause to help with your collective voices; https://www.change.org/p/stop-power-hungry-doctors-from-bullying-gaslighting-and-blacklisting-their-patients This is such an important human rights issue and is just now coming to light with more and more patients going public.

Let's have a conversation! Leave a comment!

"Chronically Strong is an absolutely beautiful blog filled with information about Ulcerative Colitis, Chronic Bowel Disease and Mental Health just to name a few. (Shawntel) has excellent healthy eating tips as well as a focus on overall wellness and nutrition, and recipes."

Though mostly about IBD, this blog covers a wide array of issues.  Shawn covers complex issues, like how her identity as an African American intersects with her IBD.  I am taken aback by the depth of each post! Whether you’re a blogger or an IBDer, her posts are sure to offer tons of inspiration.
