The Best of DoILookSick / Nerdy Edition

Hello and welcome to all my new followers! If you met me at Dallas Comic Con or you saw our ad, I bet you’re wondering why a health activist chose comic con as an event to promote their blog. I believe my blog is different than other health blogs out there. There are a lot of blogs about chronic illness out there, and if you have a chronic condition it’s easy to find support networks and reading material. But I wanted to reach more than people who were already sick and looking for help. I wanted my blog to be entertaining enough for anyone to enjoy reading. I wanted to write a blog that I would enjoy reading before I got sick. I wanted to connect people who were sick to each other, but also provide a place where they could find not only people with similar illness, but similar interests.

Long before I was a sick girl, I was a nerd. I often write about nerdy topics and tie these fandoms in to my experience with illness. I hope that if you’re new here and trying to figure out what it’s all about that you’ll take a look at some of my favorite posts:

About rachelmeeks

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.
