I have been struggling with something for awhile now, trying to figure out what is best for me, for you, and ultimately “Being Lydia” the blog.
I am working on product reviews to help my fellow chronic illness sufferers know what is out there to make our lives better. I am also striving to bring awareness to various conditions and the stigma that surrounds them.
“Being Lydia” was originally going to be a place where I talked about just that – all facets of being me. In fact, when I started I don’t think I intended to go as deeply into the health aspects as I have. However, I am very glad I did. It has been healing for me, and I seem to have reached others as well for which I am very blessed.
I tried to start another site, “Chronically Speaking” to take over the “business” or advocacy end of things. However, the transition wasn’t going as easy as I had thought. What has happened is I am kind of caught between the two places and am slightly overwhelmed as I don’t know where to put what.
So, I am asking you to please be a little patient with me. I am going to be using this blog for my reviews, for my current focus on mental health issues as I lead up to “Bell Let’s Talk Day”, and for just being Lydia.
Once the dust settles on everything I will migrate the majority of the health items to their new home and I will continue to use this blog to talk about life. It will still have health topics because they are a big part of me; however, it will be less newsy and more me just talking.
I hope that many of you will follow me over to Chronically Speaking as it promises to be interesting and, I hope, innovative.
Once again I have to say how blessed I am to have found this little niche to call my own and meet you to chat about life.
