We will be launching with Laurel’s story so when you have a chance tomorrow, please go by Invisible Awareness dot org and copy and paste a few paragraphs of her story onto your blog and let’s spend the day sharing away.
I still need a story for March and one for April so please consider submitting your story.
For the May 12th story, I am in the process of trying to see if I can use Laura Hillenbrand’s story. I am also working on perhaps getting an interview with her and with Ric Carlson. Plus an interview with an ME/CFS author.
I will also be giving away a copy of, How to be Sick , by Toni Bernhard, to one lucky person on May 12th! So, let’s get as many people interested in Invisible Awareness dot org as possible! (I’m hoping there will be other give aways as well!) [BTW, you don't have to have ME/CFS to help make ME/CFS visible! Anyone can take part and help us make ME/CFS visible!]
If you have any suggestions for ME/CFS authors I can interview, please let me know.
By the way, please sign up by email or grab the RRS feed so you will be notified of any other updates, interviews, videos, books, etc., added to the website during the month.
I am still resting, a LOT, but today is slightly better. The headaches and eye aches have eased a tad, so I am keeping my online time under two hours a day, plus, I have started wearing sunglasses indoors when I sense the flu-like symptoms starting in my eyes.
Emotionally, I’m really excited, filled with anticipation, and determined to become visiblein 2011!
Here’s to all of us becoming visible together in 2011!
P.S. Please accept my apologies if I forgot your photo in the background. I will be updating the background for March 12th, so if I forgot you, or you want to add your photo (calling all guys please!) just let me know!
FYI: Dominique’s Column at Life Skills Magazine this month will talk about how Invisible Awareness came into being so don’t forget to check it out! [Ugh...Was that self-promotion I just engaged in! ]
