Individuals who share their personal stories on Anecdote are called Contributors.
Contributing is for people who want to share about a specific approach they tried to improving their health. Using Anecdote, you can:
- Share your story in a structured way, including history, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and outcomes
- Help people with similar health profiles find your story and use what you've learned to improve their own health
- Respond to questions to feedback in the comments section to engage the community of people interested in your story
Here's how you know if you're ready to share a story:
- You have a specific health issue you can describe (it doesn't need a formal diagnosis, but you want to be able to describe the symptoms specifically)
- You tried or are trying a specific approach to improving your health
- You have something to report on how that approach worked or is working for you
It's also completely fine if your approach is ongoing. For example, maybe you tried 6 months of physical therapy for a knee injury and saw a 50% improvement, but you're still working on it. Anecdote lets you provide outcome updates to your stories, so you can always check back in another 6 months later when you've made it to a 100% recovery.
