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.

One response to “Catch-ism

  1. 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.
