By Natasha Lipman in her Chronic Illness Blog,
Goodness, hasn’t this year gone quickly? I feel as though every post I’ve written recently has in some way apologised for my lack consistent blogging. As I’m not one to break with tradition, here I am, apologising once again.
Things have been extremely difficult over the last few months, and I’ve been trying to balance the worst flare up I’ve had in years with starting my job at the BBC. My Instagram posting has suffered (again) as a result, but I’m trying to share on there more regularly. If you’re really super duper missing me oh so very much, the best place to find my updates recently has been on Twitter. I am somewhat prone to a ranty thread or six.
With all that being said, my online resolution for the new year is to try and get back to regular blogging. I’ve actually missed it more than I thought I would.
One of the things I want to start doing more of is reviews of products that are targeted at those of us with chronic illnesses and disabilities.
It’s actually quite funny slash sad that when I was a ‘wellness’ (ugh) blogger, I had a lot more opportunities to do this. Many brands, clearly, don’t find us a sexy enough audience (literally things I’ve heard said by some dickhead brand people). But I’ve been pleased to see an increase in both apps and physical products that don’t look they’ve come out of a hospital for the elderly reaching the market. Because the purple pound is totally a thing, you guys.
