Welcome to “Chronically Speaking…,” a site dedicated to creating an understanding of and breaking the stigma surrounding chronic/invisible illness.

I decided to create this site when my blog, “Being Lydia” was becoming a little jumbled with my regular posts and my desire to shine the light on invisible illness. My only expertise in this field is that I have a long list of conditions that fall under the umbrella of chronic/invisible and have friends and family who do as well. Since starting my blog two years ago, I have come in contact with so many people who are also dealing with this.

While I will still talk about my illnesses and how I deal with them in my everyday life on Being Lydia, I will be sharing articles and information here, inviting guest bloggers to share their stories, using this as a platform for my product reviews and hopefully initiating a dialogue between those that have chronic illness and those that are trying hard to understand it.

Please feel free to join in the conversation by leaving a comment or emailing me at LydiaB@chronicallyspeaking.com.

As always,
