What is Chronically Awesome?
Well, it's exactly what the banner says! A series with the intent of spreading awareness about life with chronic illnesses. I know that this series isn't necessarily about books, which may seem odd considering that this is a book blog, but I'm hoping that you guys will make an exception for this.
I came up with the idea for Chronically Awesome when I realized that there aren't a lot of main characters in YA who have chronic illnesses. They pretty much only show up in contemporary, and usually follow some plots that are less than realistic, true, and are honestly kind of insulting. (I'll be talking more about this next week).
But from that idea, I realized that there are actually a lot of misconceptions about people with chronic illnesses. So, here we are! Now, I am in no way claiming to be an expert, and my experiences and struggles aren't going to be the same as others, but I thought that this would be a good idea for opening up conversations, and learning more about each other.
Every month I will be making a post about a chronic illness, something I notice, something that bugs me, maybe I'll have some guest posts if people are interested, really, anything I (or you) want to know about. Which is where you come in. If you have anything you want to know about, a post suggestion, or if you want to make a guest post, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM me on Twitter or Instagram.
So that's it! I hope that you guys will come and read these posts (even if they aren't what you normally read). Any suggestions for posts? Let me know in the comments. :)
