August went by like a whirlwind for me! I was like an autumnal leaf caught in its drift. My ex was back in Australia for a month, so I was alone at his place caring for all the birds – they sure know how to make a mess! The tinier the trash (seed husks, and birds poop every few minutes), the more work there is! I was also busier than my usual chronic illness life, but in a good way. Things have been a bit more spontaneous of late and I’ve reaped consequences here and there, but haven’t pushed myself too far or regretted anything for now. Anyway let’s dive right into September – can you believe that the seasons will change again soon? Have fun with the writing prompts and looking eagerly to reading all your thoughts and stories!
What It’s All About
It is a monthly get together for anyone with chronic illnesses. An opportunity to share, to listen, and to learn from one another. I also think it’s a great way to provide insight into life with chronic pain, from many different points of view. All you have to do is write a short excerpt for at least three of the listed prompts, and publish it on your blog. Then click on the blue ‘Add Link’ button below to add your blog entry here. Voilà, you’re now part of the party!
A Few Simple Rules:
- Only 1 link per website.
- Do comment on at least 2 other blog posts in this linkup if you participate. Helping to spread the word on your social media is always appreciated, but not required.
- This linkup starts on the 1st of every month. There will be 5 different prompts. It will close at the end of each month before midnight. All timings listed are in Singapore time (+8 GMT).
- Pick at least 3 of the prompts to write about. 5 is best, of course! 😉
- We also ask that you share this main link to at least one of your social media outlets within the same month.
- Failure to follow these rules might get you blacklisted from future linkups. Let’s keep it fair for all 🙂
Prompts for the Month
There’s always something to find in life, isn’t there? If not a lost shoe or key with that pesky brain fog, then a desire to understand ourselves and our motivations a little better. Perhaps you are trying to become more aware of who you are as a person, or are trying to find that connection with certain people – family, friends, colleagues or even enemies. You could be looking for hope, love, peace, and so much more.
Chronic illnesses and autoimmune disorders are mysterious things, and there’s always something to research about them! Or perhaps a new clinical trial is in the works, and that excites you very much. You could also be doing some research for a pet or work project, whatever that may be.
So I get that not all of us are dating (but if you are it’d be fab to hear about your experiences!). But why not take yourself out for a pamper, or even your teenager out for some quality time? You can also share about your favourite or funniest dating memories, difficulties you face, and anything in between!
With climate change and global warming already out of control, reusing is high on the list. You might already be doing your part, or planning to do so. Perhaps you would like to be more involved, but can’t. Apart from environment issues, there are many other things that we can reuse for different intentions too, of course. Reusing certain things to save costs, or even just for sentimental value.
The older we grow, the more things to recount, both the good and the bad. What are some things that are on your mind of late, and do you have any plans for them? Looking back at good old times can be nice. Looking back at difficult times you survived, even better. I would certainly love to hear more from you!
You can find the previous linkups on this page, if you needed reference or wanted to read them.

I love looking back to see how I’ve survived. I see the meme often, that I’ve survived everything (because I’m still here)… It’s funny, but true 🙂 It’s so important and helpful for us to be thankful!
Yes it’s great to look back once in a while, especially to see how far we’ve come!
