Prompts For 2017 RABlog Week
After receiving 48 responses we have our prompts for the 2017 RABlog week. Because of comments I received during the prompt selection process I added two additional wildcard areas, so look through the entire list. I am sure you will find some cool things to blog about.

Great Blogs I have read this week – RABlog week is, at its heart, a way for bloggers to connect. Tell others about the great blogs you have read over the week. Perhaps you have found a gem from a blogger you did not know before or maybe one of your friends shared special insight. Give the high five in print to another blogger or two who participated in 2016 RABlog week.
A note about Wildcards. These are provided in case one of the daily prompts does not resonate with you. Maybe the prompt about hobbies is not up your alley. Or perhaps you wanted to blog about one of the second place prompts and it did not make the main list. No worries, switch off to a wildcard. If something is really in your heart and you want to write about it, we have the everything else wildcard. If you write about a wildcard prompt; be sure and post it to the appropriate wildcard link below.
Overlap – Discuss the medical conditions that overlap and sometimes mask or make the symptoms of autoimmune conditions worse.
New doctors – Ideas for breaking in new doctors, how to begin the process of establishing viable collaborative patient/doctor relationships. What do you do in those days leading up to the new doctor visit?
Disasters – As I write this added prompt hurricane Irma is bearing down on the east coast of the United States just as we are recovering from hurricane Harvey in the southern U.S. No one could have anticipated the scope of these disasters when the prompts were assembled in early August. So tell us your disaster stories. Maybe you were caught in a natural disaster and needed to make quick arrangements for medical attention elsewhere, a family member is suffering because of a natural disaster, or maybe you have a humorous disaster story that is worth retelling. Tell us you disaster story.
Everything else- Is there something we missed in this year’s prompts? This wildcard is your place to add it in. Not everything made our list so be adventurous and take us in a new direction. Sometimes the everything wildcard is the seed of a new prompt for next year so let your mind roam and see where it goes. Maybe mindfulness is on your mind? Or perhaps you have a funny story? We are all ready to hear the scoop on what is on your mind that was missed elsewhere.
