Book Blog Tour: Day 11

Do you look sick?  Rachel doesn’t look sick despite her painful ordeal with the invisible chronic illness of endometriosis. 

Today I have the honor of being hosted by Rachel of do I look sick.  Rachel and I have been following each other for about a year.  I have learned a lot about endometriosis through Rachel’s blog.  She devotes time talking about endometriosis and in sharing stories of others who deal with chronic invisible illnesses.

I have one thing in common with Rachel, endometriosis.  Well I had endometriosis but the doctors thought it was ovarian cancer.  I scare in 2002 sent me back to Dallas for a hysterectomy.  There was a 50/50 chance that I had ovarian cancer.  As it turned out I had stage 4 endometriosis.  I blame this on the mold exposure and all the things that it did to disrupt my hormone system and my immune system.

Rachel is also a professional editor for movie commercials (that sounds like a fun job).  That explains why I love her blog so much.  Not only does she provide information, she always has great photos and video clips.  I might be able to get a movie clip on my blog but first I would have to be able to think of one that ties in with my post.  That isn’t likely. My brain just doesn’t work that way.

Please stop by and visit with Rachel, read my interview, and check out some of her other posts.  I think will you see why I like going there as well.

Don’t forget to also enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance of one of three signed copies of Allergic to Life  through the link on her blog for those in the US or a gift card to purchase the book for those outside the US.  You can also enter the Goodreads giveaway where I will also be giving away three signed copies in the US.  The Goodreads giveaway runs through this coming Saturday, October 19th.
