Counting Down a Decade of Asthma – No. 2, My Kid’s Blog

Part of the series A Decade of Asthma

No, she doesn’t have one yet, but I hope she will someday.

I blog as the parent of an asthma patient, but the patient bloggers themselves – people like Steve, who is practically a superhero, and students¬† like Danielle and Kerri, who manage their health the way my daughter will in a few years – have convinced me she should consider blogging herself when she’s older. I want AG to have access to this small but supportive group of asthma bloggers, to have access to instant advice and information from other people living with the same respiratory disorder she does.

Using social media to help treat chronic illness is gaining traction right now, and while the decision will be her own, I’ll be encouraging my kid to take advantage of every tool the Internet offers to help her manage her health.
