Today’s WEGO Health Challenge asked “who” our favorite people on social media are. I immediately assumed that they were speaking of someone that the general public finds newsworthy, and I wasn't sure that I was up to this challenge.
You see, I do not really buy into that whole Twitter/Hash tag thing and I really could care less about “So and So’s” latest and greatest diet, or manicure, but then I realized that I DO “follow” my family and closest friends; and I have also made many, internet friends that have chronic myelogenous leukemia, just like me! Pat Elliot, Greg Stephens and Shara Tietz are also great Health Activists and friends.
I also follow the WEGO Health site as they have a huge community of health advocates and I love their information and support. I am sure that there really are some great people to “follow” and I may be missing the train, but for now, I only have so much time in one day, and just keeping up with my granddaughter’s eighth birthday photo shoot and my grandson’s new love of Texas Hold ‘Em is about all I have time for!
The sites that I have found most informative and supportive are on Facebook, although there is a great group of CML patients in a google email group, too. You may wish to check them out!
