Those of us with acquired health conditions may feel that our health condition started silently. You might have started noticing symptoms or you might not have felt yourself. Often times we find ourselves explaining away the symptoms; that it’s just the stress in our lives that is the cause. But then there is the first doctor’s appointment, maybe tests, and all the while you’re wondering, “When did it all start? Why didn’t I see this coming? How could I have prevented this?

Symptom Journal Beginnings

It amazes me in how many ways creating SymptomJournal.Com parallels giving birth to a child. We are at approximately 42 weeks; we are about two weeks overdue. I am as inspired, engaged and excited about our launch, as I was with my kid’s births, incredible, but true. I have put so much of who I am, and what I believe into the creation of the Symptom Journal that it feels very much like my child.

We began with the anticipation of what it would be like, nothing like it has really been. Just like hopes and dreams for our kids, Symptom Journal has left me incredulous with what it has become. This was an organic process, messy like art at times, all of us stretching and giving it our best. I was able to bring together some wonderfully talented women who believe, like myself, in enabling people with chronic health condiitons through symptom journaling to have a better quality of life.

We have all stretched using our abilities and talents to create the best experience for our members. Just as a pregnancy can seem like it has engulfed our lives for what seems like an eternity, our time creating the Symptom Journal seems like it has been fast and also a very long process at times. What unified us and kept us strong was our commitment to our members and our hope that we could help them have healthier lives.

What at times seemed like hurdles in the beginning, brought us together in the end, the excitement growing as birth drew near, our talents woven together, bringing us to our moment of birth. We went through many transitions, more than just the one you have with birthing a child, and each one made our buy prescription pills team stronger, unifying us in our mission. It was a miracle that brought us together, grew our team, allowing us to push through to this moment of birth.

You are our inspiration. Our passion is what drives our commitment to give the very best of ourselves to you and the Symptom Journal. We will strive to keep it real, vulnerable, from our hearts, timely, professional, fun, and growing to meet your needs and filling an important place in your lives.
