Why Blog About Your Disability?

Posted on the 08 February 2015 by Dfennell @BloggerGo

Blogging has taken off in recent years as a popular format for sharing one’s thoughts, experiences, and opinions. Today, the wealth of options for blogging platforms has made blogging easier than ever. The average person can easily begin their own blog and maintain it at their convenience. Some people simply blog about their day to day lives. Another way to manage your blog is to stick to a particular theme. Many people blog about a struggle or journey they are currently going through; for some, this struggle is dealing with their disability.

If you’re disabled, there’s a lot of hoops you have to jump through in your life which able bodied people may not understand. How can blogging help you get through the trials of your disability?

How Blogging Can Help

  1. Finding community. For some people, feeling isolated is the hardest part of being disabled. The physical pain and discomfort of being disabled coupled with these feelings of loneliness lead many people with chronic conditions to develop depression. If your disability makes it difficult or impossible to leave the house, feelings of loneliness can be overwhelming.

The internet is a wonderful way to find people with similar experiences. Blogging about your disability can bring you into a large community of bloggers who understand what you’re going through.

  1. Getting advice. If you have a disability, you may need financial assistance from the federal or state government. The process of applying for these benefits can be confusing and tiring, particularly if you don’t have much energy to begin with. Through blogging, you can meet people who have gone through this process before. They can advise you on selecting a good lawyer, submitting your paperwork, what kind of benefits to apply for, and more.

If your disability is a condition not very well understood by the medical community, you may find it difficult to get relief from pain, discomfort, or other symptoms. People you meet online with similar conditions can tell you what they do to feel better. With this advice, you can improve your quality of life.

  1. Investing in a project. Because of your disability, certain hobbies may be no longer possible for you. Being unable to do the things which used to make you happy can be very difficult emotionally. It’s important to find new hobbies. New hobbies and projects can help you feel better emotionally and even physically.

Blogging is an excellent project for those who are limited in energy. Your blog can take up as much or little time in your day as you want it to. Your blog can be whatever you want it to be, making it an excellent project to invest in.

Conclusion

Managing your disability isn’t easy. Legal, medical, and financial considerations are all stressful and time consuming. Blogging about your disability can help you relate to your body in a more positive way. Become empowered through the online communities you develop with your blog.
