Abandoned in my hour of need

You were witness to the early onset of Cluster Headache attacks. Doctors didn’t know how to help and the Emergency Room was even worse. I was frightened, thinking the attacks might kill me. Our children were small and just as scared. My husband stood by me, helpless to relieve my agony, angry that no one else could help either. You did nothing.

Lightning rod

Considering health activism through blogging? Be careful what you wish for. Are you prepared to become a lightning rod for your cause? We’d all like to be happy little bloggers. You will face opposition, criticism, insults, and more. A lot of it will get very personal. The people who appreciate you the most are the least likely to let you know you’re doing a good job. Most days you will wonder if anyone ever visits your blog or reads beyond the headline on Twitter.
