If you struggle with a chronic illness of any kind, you need to check this site out. Who hasn’t been told “you don’t look sick” and not wanted to slug someone?
Butyoudontlooksick.com was founded by Christine Miserando who is a writer, blogger, speaker and patient advocate from NY. Here is a snippet of her biography found on the site: “From the age of fifteen, Christine Miserandino has been diagnosed with a myriad of illnesses from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to Epstein Barr, and finally, many years later to a determination of Lupus. Though battling a shopping list of symptoms, Christine has consistently been told, by both well-wishers and doctors alike, “But you don’t look sick.” as if that was some kind of compensation for being chronically ill. Many times, being pretty or not sickly looking, made it harder to validate an illness you cannot see.” Thus, the founding of butyoudontlooksick.com

What a fun website! And what a great idea to share a new website each Wed. Maybe BlogFrog could be Website Wednesday some day?
I love your blog design. It's very warm.
