Lovely Tessa and her blog, Tessa Can Do It! has nominated me for an Encouraging Thunder Award – I’m thrilled, because it’s my first award ever! Read her blog here:-
I’m very excited to be nominated for it – thank you, Tessa! Do follow her blog, she’s an inspiration to anyone suffering from any chronic illness, and in particular those involving mental health issues.
(Hope I get this right!)
My reasons for blogging:
1. As a creative outlet for expressing my feelings and experiences in relation to being disabled and chronically ill. I was finally diagnosed with thyroid and adrenal problems in 2000 (only part of the answer), breast cancer in 2007 (a blind-siding shock), and fibromyalgia (fibro what?) in 2011. I was then 49 and had been ill for most of my life, so my Mystery Illness went undiagnosed for more than three decades.
2. Because I want to help as many people as I can through writing about what I have learned about human health. I first started asking doctors for help when I was a teenager, but got nowhere fast. Since I was (and still am) determined to be well, I developed a passionate interest in natural medicine. It has helped me enormously, and I learn more every day. I also want to offer emotional as well as practical support, because I had precious little of that even throughout my breast cancer.

******PLEASE NOTE! **********
I’M HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THESE LINKS TO WORK, SO IF ANYONE CAN SEE WHAT I’VE DONE WRONG, PLEASE TELL ME! (Using iPad, if that makes a difference.)
ALL I DID WAS COPY THE SITE ADDRESS FROM THE ADDRESS BAR AT THE TOP OF EACH PAGE, WHICH IS USUALLY WHERE THE CORRECT ADDRESS FOR ANY WEBSITE IS TO BE FOUND.
THREE OF THE LINKS ABOVE WON’T TAKE ME TO THE BLOG THAT THEY SHOULD DO WHEN I CLICK ON THEM IN THE FINISHED POST. TWO OF THEM DO TAKE ME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
HELP ME, SOMEONE! (Pretty please…)
