How Blogging with Dermatomyositis Changed My Life

Rare Disease & Syndrome

Alannah "Wheelie Healthy"

What is Wheelie Healthy?

Hey everyone! I just want to introduce myself. My name is Alannah, and I'm a blogger & Film student from Ireland. I started blogging last summer as a hobby and I've grown it into something I hope to turn into a business someday. I'm currently rebranding it a little but the bones of the project is still there. I wanted to create a community for people with chronic illnesses and people with disabilities to find somewhere they can go to relate to something. In an age of crisp instagram feeds and paid influencers, it's important that the "real" stories of chronically ill people are represented and shine through. I have a rare condition called Dermatomyositis, and I never had a community to connect with or anyone to really relate to. That's the main reason I started Wheelie Healthy. I started as an instagram account and went from there, and now I share my own experiences, the experiences of others as well as easy to follow recipes. Cooking is a great distraction from me, so I wanted to combine my passion for sharing stories with my love of food in one place.

You can find me at wheeliehealthyblog.weebly.com and there's contact info on the page if you want to get in touch. We feature guest writers, chronically ill creators and I'd love to hear some of your favourite recipes as well! Blogging has allowed me to connect with people, to share my lfe with people and has even brought me to the Tedx stage. It's something I adore and while it's challenging, it's also rewarding beyond words. So come join in the fun!
