This blog focuses on the health and wellness of nurses, with one section of my blog focusing on living with and managing chronic illness, as a nurse. TheWellNurseLife focuses on all 7 dimensions of wellness and how all of these dimensions tie together and affect chronic illness. So many people suffer from some type of chronic condition, and many of those people are nurses, who are trying to care for others, as their profession, day in and day out. So as nurses, how do we care for others when we often struggle to care for ourselves? What can we do to be healthy and well not only in our personal lives but in our work life as well? My chronic illness is Systemic Mast Cell Disease. This disease affects every tissue and organ system resulting in a wide array of symptoms. Over the years I have learned that every dimension of wellness affects my illness. This blog is about finding my own wellness as a nurse, to improve management of my own disease, and to help others learn how to do this along the way. This is a forum for learning, information sharing, support, and hopefully the start of a movement for nurses to focus on their own personal and professional wellness. At TheWellNurseLife you will find information supported by literature, my home remedies that have helped me control my illness and symptoms, clean eating and healthy recipes, inspirational quotes and so much more!
