If you would like to submit images then please do, we would love to include them. Pictures could be of you, your family, or something relevant to the story you are telling. You are under no obligation to include images so please don’t feel pressured to submit them if you do not feel comfortable.

Please try to avoid things like:

  • Politics
  • Religious views.
  • Profanity
  • Medical advice (please only include personal experience).

The Template:

  • Title:
      • Feel free to come up with your own title. It can simply be your name or something more that describes you and your story. Remember this is YOUR story, so make it as personal as you would like
      • Here are some examples:
        • Emily’s 427 Mile Trike Ride with Ataxia
        • More Than What’s on the Surface
        • Journey to Diagnosis
  • Introduction:
      • The introduction is the perfect place to introduce yourself to help the readers get to know you. You could include things like:
        • Your name
        • Your age
        • Your hobbies
        • Your diagnosis
        • Your occupation
      • It is entirely up to you what you include, do whatever you feel comfortable with.

      • Remember, it doesn’t need to fit within that example, but its there if you are struggling with what to write!
  • Main Body:
      • This can be as long or as short as you want, we have a variety of lengths already on the stories page. You may find that as you write, you just keep going!
      • The main body is where you go into depth about your story. 
      • Pick something about your diagnosis, something you have struggled with, treatment (although not giving medical advice, just your personal experience with it), something you have overcome etc. Write about it in your own words.
      • It doesn’t have to be one of those topics but they are just some examples to get you thinking
