Just a short post this time featuring some of my favourite Instagram accounts. When navigating social media with a chronic illness it can be hard to find accounts to follow. So many are (understandably) focused on their illnesses and all the difficulties that reality has for them. However, these often make for very negative reading. I can’t read accounts like this as it is bad for my own mental health to only see the harshness of life when you’re chronically ill. Particularly when you’re living it already. This is not a criticism of those accounts, as many find them helpful to write and read. It is more of a lesson learned for me. I need to be careful of the content I consume.

This weeks accounts of joy are all run by people with chronic illnesses/disabilities. They have all helped me in my own journey of acceptance and motivation for my current and future life. To see these women continue to strive for what they want has inspired me. Inspired me to start this blog, my Etsy shop and to plan for the future life that I want. It may well take me longer and via a different path then I would ever have dreamed of, but I am starting it now.

If you follow me on Instagram you can see in more detail why I’ve chosen these fantastic accounts.

All these brilliant women have wonderful blogs, well worth a follow.
