This has been an amazing opportunity for me, and I am honored to be included with some amazing bloggers!


My wish when I started Graceful Agony was to spread the word, and increase awareness on Chronic Illness and Chronic Pain.  I wanted to be able to light another person’s path through a life that is often misunderstood.  I wanted to leave my footprint, make friendships, and be a part of an amazingly supportive online community…. and THAT is the biggest gift in what I do here.  I get all of those things and so much more every day.

The rest is icing on the cake.

PLEASE GET VOTING, AND JOIN THE CAMPAIGN!!

SPREAD THE WORD!!!

VOTE!!!!

PLEASE!!

Thank you to everyone that has given me such amazing support and encouragement through this process.  Graceful Agony wouldn’t be a part of the world-wide web if it wasn’t for you.

You keep me inspired,

keep me coming back,

and keep me loving what I do…

In spite of Pain.

XOXOXOXO

Hi Everyone!!

Sorry it has been a while since I posted last… I am sure you all know how it goes though… Tis the season to escort my little dude here, there, and everywhere 😉  I wonder why we always look forward to summer, when it seems to be MUCH busier than the school year…. I can tell you, I for one, really NEED A VACATION!!!

For those readers who are also a part of the Graceful Agony Facebook group, you may already know that I am starting up a BRAND NEW BLOG CARNIVAL…. Yes, we will have our OWN carnival – and I am so excited!!  The idea has already been received REALLY well!!  I think the first round is going to be AWESOME!!!

Now for those not knowing what a “Blog Carnival” is – don’t be embarrassed… I didn’t know what it was when I started blogging either 😉  Here is the Wikipedia link for the true definition… “It is similar to a magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly”.

In other words… Every few weeks (yet to be determined, but I am thinking every 3-4 weeks), a topic will be chosen and sent to you… YOU write a post, post it, and send me a link to your post with a small synopsis or something about you that led you to write that particular post… and then I will compile them – and feature ALL of them on this site!  Once we solidify the group and I know that the turnout each round will be somewhat consistent 😉  then I will ask other people to host the Blog Carnival, and they will be in charge of compiling and featuring the posts on their site!

It is a REALLY fun way to get to know other people in the online pain community, it increases traffic to your site (and helps you make friends online!), and most of all it is really neat to read everyone’s posts each month – It so amazing what people come up with when given the same ‘topic’, and I for one, learn SO much about myself, others, and the human spirit each time I take part in a carnival!

Don’t have a BLOG?  Well then you have TWO options… You can always start one 😉  -BUT- if you do not want to make the commitment to have your own blog, you can STILL participate… I will open another ‘Tab” under this site, and I will publish you article here if you don’t have a blog of your own (obviously giving YOU credit for it).

So you’d like to participate in the very FIRST ROUND please send me a message including your email address and link to your Blog (if you have one)… I will be sending everyone an email before we start the first round… and speaking of which…. Do you want to have a say in what we will write about for our VERY first round??? (whether or not you are participating in the carnival, you can still have a say in what you’d like to read about!!)

If you have any topic ideas that you would like to see featured in our carnival, please let me know!!

Also, I need to ask a favor…. I’d LOVE for all participants to proudly put a Graceful Agony Carnival badge on their page.. but I have NO IDEA how to make one… Is there anyone out there who’d like to volunteer their time and design one???

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!! I am so fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful community!!!!

Now… Are you going to join in on the fun???  LET ME KNOW!!! THE FIRST ROUND WILL BE STARTING SOON!!!!!!

Chronic Illness changes every aspect of our lives

Do you want to take part in an anonymous and truthful study?

I am looking for people who are either currently in a relationship (married or otherwise) or have been in a relationship that chronic pain has had an impact on intimacy who would like to share their experiences, strength, hope and fears anonymously.

Chronic Pain has a huge impact on ALL parts of our lives, so it isn’t surprising that our love lives are impacted as well… and it is an issue that MANY of us struggle with, but are too shy to talk about.

I have compiled a survey and I have a forum here to share the results….

BUT I NEED YOU TO HELP!!!

If you are interested in completing the survey and having the information compiled into an in-depth article that will be posted here, please email me at gracefulagony@gmail.com.

ALL OF THE RESULTS WILL BE POSTED ANONYMOUSLY TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY, AND I WILL NOT SHARE NAMES OR OTHER IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WITH ANYONE.

BY REACHING OUT AND SHARING OUR OWN EXPERIENCES WE MAY HAVE THE TOOLS TO HELP OTHERS…..
