Toot Your Horn Tuesday – September Edition

TYHTDec18Toot Your Horn Tuesday is a place where any blogger who either has a disability or writes on topics of health and wellness for people with chronic conditions can come and share their best article each month with the Zebra Pit Community. Ideally it would be something that might interest and enrich our readers; Have a tutorial on meditation? Did you demo a product on pain relief? Wrote an article on 12 ways to achieve better sleep? Shared your story about getting a diagnosis? Created some tips on how to deal with difficult doctors? Waxed poetic over the joys of adult coloring as a way to de-stress? Share it here!

Here are the rules:

  1. The post you share doesn’t have to be on a disability health or wellness topic. If it isn’t, you must be the caregiver for, or a person affected by disability and you must occasionally use your blog to promote visibility and acceptance of disabilities (and yes, I will be checking).
  2. Only one post share per blog/blogger per month is allowed.
  3. You must like and follow the blog to participate (liking us on social media is great, but you must follow the actual page). If you aren’t a follower, your comment will not be approved.
  4. Be respectful of the Zebra Pit brand and the community. Rudeness, ableism, sexism, racism or any other intolerant behavior or promoted posts containing these elements will be removed. I expect the same from anyone who participates here.
  5. Blog links should be shared to Toot Your Horn Tuesday specified pages ONLY and must match the month of publication, but you can post on any day or time, NOT just Tuesday! For example: All August 2018 TYHT posts shared here should have been posted on your blog or website between 8/1/18-8/31/18. If you post it in the comments on this page on 9/15/18 or even 11/13/18, that’s fine. People come back and read old posts all the time, so it’s still worth it.
  6. Commenting will be shut down on each post after two months.
  7. These rules are subject to change at the discretion of the editors for the duration of the program.


To participate, provide a description of your blog post along with a link in the comments section of this post (at the bottom), which will remain open for two months. To find the comments section, scroll all the way to the bottom past the Related Posts section. Once it is reviewed for suitability, it will be posted. I will post a new Big Blog Party post on the LAST TUESDAY of each month so be sure to set your calendars to return next month and share this post to spread the word with your community and blogger friends so they can participate, too! I look forward to getting to know you and  your work better!


Please keep the conversation going! Take the time to like and comment on the blogs you enjoyed reading so our guest bloggers know you appreciate their work and will keep coming back to contribute to our knowledge base! I may use your reactions to choose certain articles to reblog periodically and to build more on the types of  topics covered at the Zebra Pit as well.

    1. I absolutely love this and your outlook. Fibromyalgia is so difficult, debilitating, and mentally frustrating. You’re a very strong lady!


    1. Hi chronic mom! So glad you joined us, though technically this should go on the October post and of course I didn’t catch that, so it’s my bad. If you want to post it to that one, too feel free! Pacing is a great subject!


  1. Hi Carole! Thanks so much for sharing your reflections with us. I’m glad you joined us! I look forward to reading more of your work!


  2. Due to some technical difficulties, I’m posting a submission on behalf of someone else, Barbara from Catch Your Breath 60. Barbara’s post is on nutrition, malnutrition and the importance of getting a good breakfast, something we need to be reminded about every now and then! There’s also a delicious recipe!

    1. Beautiful post, Helen! Glad you joined us! I guess I’m a bit of an odd duck. I’ve always enjoyed this time of year. Not surprising really, it’s the only time I get a slight reprieve from the worst of my MCAS problems, even though I don’t do great with the cold. The scenery definitely helps 😊

      1. Thank you, I’m enjoying sharing with you on this platform too👌
        So glad to hear such a positive about the season with you getting some reprieve despite the cold 👏 I’m sure that helps you appreciate the beautiful scenery & colours of the season even more 😍

  3. So glad you decided to join us again, Sheryl! I’m really enjoying this series! I love to dream about living/visiting different places. This Link up was inspired. If I wasn’t cramming in 3 weeks of work into 1 (while nursing a nasty case of sinusitis) to go on vacation starting tomorrow I probably would have joined.

    1. Oh dear, please take care. I hope that infection clears up before your holiday so you have really enjoy it! As for the linkup, there’s no deadline, so if you ever ever feel like you want to share, it’s there! 🙂 I and many others will be interested to hear what you have to say 🙂 x

      1. I just might do that. I have plenty to say about the greater Cincinnati area that I think would be quite useful for others. I’ll put it on my calendar for when I return. Thanks Sheryl. I’m tucked in bed, behaving myself so I can get free and do some fun stuff hopefully in just a couple of days with any luck.


    1. This is such a great idea! Can’t wait to check this out in more detail. I believe this will be very helpful for many of us who don’t know of the accommodations of helpful resources in our own area. Plus, if enough of us find issues on a particular issue in our local city, this could be helpful in pushing for a change or modification 🙂

  4. I’m Janeen and I have 5 autoimmune diseases, primarily Lupus (SLE). I write blogs on topics that are for those with Lupus, but many will apply to all autoimmune diseases. This topic is on your legal rights in the workplace (in the USA). This information has literally saved my position and allowed me to make and continue to make changes in my position without losing pay or time off or anything. I’ve also created a free PDF with current careers that allow you to work at home or provide companies that are more flexible with working at home and asking for different equipment to make your life easier. I hope you find this helpful!
