Are you living with chronic illness? Do you have a unique perspective or personal story to share? An Ideal Life is dedicated to creating a supportive community for individuals with chronic illness and neurodivergence. We believe that everyone’s story is important and can inspire and empower others. That’s why we are excited to invite you to contribute to our Personal Stories series!

About the Personal Stories Series

The Personal Stories series on An Ideal Life is a platform for individuals with chronic illness to share their experiences, challenges, triumphs, and insights. We believe in the power of personal narratives to foster understanding, empathy, and connection within our community. By sharing your story, you have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on others who may be going through similar experiences.


Currently, we’re planning our personal stories series for autumn 2023, showcasing others with chronic illness. This is some of what we’re looking for in a guest post.

  1. Topic: Share your personal journey, challenges, victories, coping mechanisms, or any aspect of your life that you feel is important to your experience with chronic illness. Be authentic and honest in your storytelling.
  2. Length: Posts should be approximately 1,000 words. We encourage you to take the space you need to express yourself fully.
  3. Format: Posts can be in the form of a personal essay, a letter, or any other format that suits your storytelling style. Feel free to include images or relevant artwork if desired.
  4. Originality: We accept only original content that has not been previously published elsewhere.
