Catch-ism

#HAWMC Day 17: Health Tagline

Give yourself, or your patient experience a tagline. Grab attention with your slogan. Make sure it’s catchy!

I…think my twitter handle pretty much sums it up:

@ChronicBadass

Because, yes.

I have a mo-fo autoimmune disease and I still “Do.” I challenge the notion that people with chronic illness can’t “Do.”…and I grab that perception by the proverbial balls and I don’t let it go. Ever.

To do so, would be an insult to any of us health advocates who continually push through, endure and persevere.

I advocate for those afflicted with Lupus and its plethora of secondary syndromes and I advocate it raw, unfiltered and as real as it gets…complimentary *middle finger salute* included, like some kind of Cracker Jack box.

Life with an autoimmune disease ain’t all purple painted ponies pooping butterflies jacked up on SugarSmacks, peeps. Not. At. All.

I do this, this advocacy, because if you grow to love “Me.”…grow to love the words illustrating my journey through disease, I will ultimately shatter the perception that people with chronic illnesses aren’t “worthy” or lack the capacity to be complex, multi-faceted human beings.

Sam JacksonMy catchy, attention-getting slogan?

I’m not dead yet, muthafucka.

True story.

    Keep on doing what you’re doing. What people go through with chronic illness is shitty, and to pretty it up all the time is just not accurate.
