HAWMC: April 2012

all posts from the wego heatlh’s Health Activist Writers Month Challenge (April 2012)

HAWMC 2012 Completed!

I’m quite shocked how fast a month has come and gone. But it’s been pretty awesome doing the HAWMC for all of April (bar my two day hiatus last weekend, woops!) and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being prompted and inspired by posts and others. I hope it continues! And I will be back next year 😛


Day Thirty – Word Cloud

Word Cloud. Make a word cloud or tree with a list of words that come to mind when you think of your blog, health or interests. Use a thesaurus to make the branches of your “tree” extend further. This made me realise how much I associate with my Crohns. From my medication to my time in hospital. From my nickname…


Day Twenty Nine – Six Sentence Story

Six Sentence Story. In this day of micro-blogging – brevity is a skill worth honing. Can you tell a story and make it short and sweet? What can you say in six sentences. Check out some at http://sixsentences.blogspot.com/ What am I suppose to do? she wonders, as she stares at the table, fighting tears. “I’m falling to pieces, falling apart…


Day Twenty Eight – The First Time I…

The First Time I… Write a post about the first time you did something. What was it? What was it like? What did you learn from it? Along with this blog, I keep two diaries. One is my social diary – it has my work schedule and my Humira injection dates, deliveries, nights out, lunch dates, coffee dates, plans I…


Day Twenty Seven – 5 Challenges & 5 Small Victories

5 Challenges & 5 Small Victories. Make a list of the 5 most difficult parts of your health focus. Make another top 5 list for the little, good things (small victories) that keep you going. CHALLENGES – Fatigue / Insomnia: For me these two things are inter linked. I get tired more as my Humira wears off. But as that happens,…


Day Twenty Six – Health Tagline

Health Tagline. Give yourself, your blog, your condition, or some aspect of your health a tagline. Make sure it’s catchy! I spent a long time contemplating the title of my blog when I begun way back in August last year. I came to the conclusion that ‘Free Falling’ summed up my initial feelings about having Crohn’s disease. From the John…


Day Twenty Five – Third Person

Third person post. Write about a memory you have but describe it using the third person. Use as many sensory images (sights, sounds, textures, etc) as you can.  Don’t use “I” or “me” unless you include dialogue. She sat in the waiting room, unaware of the people around her. Her mind spun; she felt groggy like she hadn’t slept in weeks,…


Day Twenty Three – Greatest Weakness

“…will always remain one of my greatest weaknesses” What would you consider being your biggest weakness? Probably not the nicest things to discuss, but I’ve always known that I had weaknesses – you wouldn’t be a human if you didn’t – but being weak – actual physical weakness – was something I couldn’t deal with. Even on the basic level…
