The Bible of Blogs.

The end of Mental Health Awareness Month is almost here, and so many of you have been asking me the question, “can you recommend a blog for me to follow for sufferers of…?”
So, this blog is all about my Bible Of Blogs for Sufferers of Mental, Chronic or Invisible Illnesses.

I encourage you to do the same,
as I am sure we have all come across different blogs that we favour.

In light of doing this, we will be:
– spreading awareness of our illnesses
– guiding new and old bloggers to the right people for help, guidance and understanding.
– uniting to help each other’s pages grow

I have spent a few days, in between illness, searching through all close-to-600 followers. I also had a Followers Malfunction, where WordPress told me I was not following anyone/then suddenly was following/then wasn’t again, so MY APOLOGIES for any notifications you may have received!

I have read, and read, and read your posts.
Let me tell you that what I came across made me laugh, brought me to tears, and left me with that “this person understands” feeling.
I wish I could put links to all of your blogs here, but as that is near impossible, I have chosen as many as my brain would allow me to for today.

I hope this is somewhat of a help.
If you feel up to it, create a list of your own.
We can really make a difference and spread awareness if we unite.

  1. Thanks for such an honor. I can’t even explain how grateful I am for you sharing your experience with us, and all the other wonderful people on here who share some of the hardest, most personal parts of their life. I can’t stress the importance of getting your story out there, not only to bring awareness to whatever condition or experience you are going through, especially for those who have an invisible illness. It’s so easy to feel lost and broken and alone in this journey. I don’t know where I’d be mentally or emotionally without both reading other’s blogs and sharing my own personal experiences.
    I hope you don’t mind that I’d love to share this post to get more awareness out there and maybe a certain blog will provide others the strength that I’ve received from you and all the amazing blogs I follow on WordPress.

    Cass from indisposedandundiagnosed.wordpress.com was kind enough to put together a detailed list of some of her favorite blogs that she follows that have inspired her, as well as to create awareness for the variety of both medical and mental health conditions that encompass the truth behind living with an invisible illness. I feel so lucky to belong to such a strong community filled with strength, honesty,and acceptance. . I can’t stress the importance of getting your story out there, not only to bring awareness to whatever condition or experience you are going through, especially for those who have an invisible illness.

      1. I was not notified. I’m finally catching up on reading everyone’s posts from the past few days and saw it that way. Does WordPress have an actual tagging function? If not, they really need to make that happen haha!

    Cass from indisposedandundiagnosed.wordpress.com has taken the time to put together a bible of blogs by topic for sufferers of mental, chronic, and invisible illnesses. I feel truly honored to be included on the list! This is such a wonderful idea and can serve as a way to help connect with others facing similar battles and help raise awareness for various types of illnesses. I know there’s quite a few blogs on this list that I’m going to be checking out soon!
