On Monday I asked the Internet why there wasn’t a “My Cancer Secret” similar to My Diabetes Secret.
Yesterday, with some help, I took matters into my own hands with the launch of My Chronic Disease Secret.
I wrote an introductory post, which you can read by clicking on this link. Here’s the punchline.
But diabetes isn’t the only chronic disease impacting lives around the world. Where is My Cancer Secret? Why isn’t there a My Cystic Fibrosis Secret? Shouldn’t there be a My Depression Secret?
Here it is.
My Chronic Disease Secret is building upon what My Diabetes Secret started, offering a safe place for anyone living with or impacted by a chronic disease to share their secret free of shame, of stigma, of judgement.
More will surely follow as this gets off the ground, but I feel good about this one. Given how much of an impact (I believe) My Diabetes Secret has had on the diabetes community, it only seems natural, and fair, to give the rest of the chronic disease community an opportunity to share what they are feeling.
There’s never been an obligation or requirement to participate in this stuff, but if you need it, it will be there.
