Today is the first day of Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge!

Today’s Prompts:

  • Why you write – tell us a little bit about why you write about your health online and what got you started.
  • Why HAWMC? This is our third year of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge – why did you get involved this year? Are you a newbie to #HAWMC or a veteran?

There are so many unknowns and questions people, including myself, have when it comes to Lupus. The exact cause, a cure, all the different types, signs and symptoms, the list goes on.  I started writing on this blog to help inform people about Lupus, and to keep myself educated by doing my own research.  Increasing awareness will only help to hopefully get more funding for Lupus research and to let people know what it is really like to live with Lupus.

I also get a lot of questions in my own daily life about how to live a healthier life, lose excess weight and about exercise.  I’m no expert, but I am glad to share whatever information I know!

I just happened upon a blogger’s site who is also involved in HAWMC and I think it is an awesome idea! I just had to join.  I had never heard of the challenge before, so I am excited to see other blogs, get involved and write away!

Tell me what you think!
