Enter into my vision

So I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to raise awareness for AI diseases.
I think I have it. Picture this... most AI disease sufferers look relatively OK on the outside but have really gross days of suffering on the inside forcing these seemingly healthy people to spend days upon days in their house in their pijamas trying to get their life back on track. Well, here's the plan.... a nation-wide pijama day. PJ's for AI's. Get people to go to work, school, play, dates, etc. in their pijamas. If you suffer or know someone who suffers from an AI disease, wear your PJ's in support. Then list all the AI diseases and guaranteed everyone will know someone. Guaranteed. Get businesses to challenge each other have PJ fashion shows. Can you see it? I don't know how to raise money for it with this but I think the awareness is most important now.

Just to give an idea of how our day might look like.

Part two. Have PJ day on Rare Disease day - end of February. Why? Because society hasn't put it together yet. When we look at the various diseases separately many of them fall under Rare Diseases - like Wegener's, however when you put them under the same umbrella (like has been done with cancer) Auto Immune diseases affect millions and millions of people. The find of a cure - or common thread - could have world wide implications. It would save billions of dollars world wide on chronic illness care as this is the number one drain on medical systems throughout the world and AI diseases are the number one cause for chronic illness.

How's that for a goal?

Wanna play? Wanna change the world? It hasn't been taken on yet, and well who better to take it on than a bunch of sick people?

This is gonna be SICK! ;)


  1. I love your idea of PJ day, I can certainly relate to all the days I feel like I can't get out of my pajamas. When I can go back to work, I will certainly suggest it.....keep up the great work.........joan

  2. It does amuse me greatly to think of us weggies replacing the professional models in your photo. Yes, I think a pin-up calendar,"The Weggies of..." might have possibilities...
