AtopicGirl Is On Hiatus

When I started the AtopicGirl blog and Twitter feed, it was partly because I wanted to get some experience with social media. My background is in communications and social media is now a huge part of being a part of that discipline.

Over a year later, I've become heavily involved with volunteer organizations related to healthcare and politics - my two loves. Unfortunately, AtopicGirl has suffered for that recently as my volunteer involvements have increased. I love the positions I have, and honestly, without AtopicGirl I wouldn't have achieved what I have.

Still, I have to put aside my blog for now. I can no longer make the commitment it deserves. I hope this is a temporary situation and I will still be on Twitter, though in a limited capacity. I still have so many things to write about regarding eczema, allergies, asthma and mental health. I still think there's a lot of misinformation regarding these conditions on the internet and I've always thought my place was to provide a non-medical, but evidence-based opinion from someone who has these conditions and believes that scientific evidence is the best way to evaluate effective treatments, no matter the origin - from nature or from a lab.

I also still believe that while Canadians are fortunate to have universal health care, we do not have the best system in the world and can learn a lot more from other nations about dealing with chronic conditions.

Clearly, I have a lot to say still and hopefully, I'll be back soon to say it.

Thank you for reading and please don't hesitate to contact me.
