#HAWMC Day 5 – BREAKING NEWS!!!

Today I’m supposed to be writing about my proudest accomplishment from the last 5 years. This a tough one, because as a blogger I already share a lot about myself with you all. I’ve told you about the NORD Patient Meeting, and the  OVAC event from last summer, I told you when I got married (It will be three years on April 14th! Crazy!).

I guess there isn’t really a whole lot of “Breaking News” at this point – you’ve been with me through a lot! You’ve seen me fight to get to use PegIntron, you suffered through the side effects with me, we’ve learned about treatments together, you’ve listened to me complain about migraines, and about my spleen.

My Breaking News is that – I’ve come to the realization just how much I appreciate my readers! You are extremely important to me. You help me through tough times, you share stories with me, give advice. I cannot begin to express how lucky and thankful I am to have you.

As always, you are your own best advocate. If you do not stand up for yourself, who will?

Up next, #HAWMC Day 6 – Your Hero!

Until next time,

#HAWMC Day 4 – Creature of Habit

We all have habits. Some good, some bad. I was having a little trouble starting this one, so I turned to my loving husband, and told him I just couldn’t get going. After I told him the prompt for today his comment was “Well, you habitually change your clothes over and over again before you go to work…”. Snarky, perhaps. But not untrue. I do that. Almost every day. I have always been a little bit self conscious, so I often over-think what I plan to wear. Thankfully my over-thinking extends beyond just clothing – I am equally as anal with regard to my health care.

My binder (about which I’ve written before) is a very beneficial habit, the result of my borderline obsession with my healthcare. With this binder I am able to keep track of my blood results, questions I have for my doctor, the answers to those questions, articles of interest, and copies of my appointment schedules. This binder, has been a great resource for me over the years, and one of my more beneficial habits.

What habits do you have that have helped you out over the years?

As always, you are your own best advocate. If you do not stand up for yourself, who will?
