Liebster Blog Award!!

I have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award by Amy Junod at Falling with Grace. She deals with Sjogren's Syndrome, but more than that, her blog deals with the important part of remembering that it's not the mistakes we make, it's our recovery from them that counts. Go check her out!

This award is given to bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. The Liebster Award takes its name from the German word meaning ‘Beloved, Dearest or Favorite’. I’m humbled and honored to receive this award.

As part of the tradition it is passed along to 5 bloggers that have motivated and inspired.

To accept the award you must:

1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them.

2. Post the award to your blog.

3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you appreciate and value.

4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have been offered this award.

I am honoring the following bloggers for their wonderful contributions to the health community.

Deb, over at ABCs of RA blogs about the issues of chronic illness through her eyes as a patient with Rheumatoid Arthritis, a long-term disease that leads to inflammation of the joints and surrounding tissues. (It can also affect other organs.) She also tackles the personal and psychological issues that arise with any chronic illness.

Lori is a new blogger at Carpespero. She's dealing with Stage 3 Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and is in the process of trying to get on the liver transplant list. She has amazing strength and talks about some really tough subjects with amazing openness and honesty.

Wendy, at Depression Getaway deals with clinical depression and all the trappings that come with it. I love what she teaches in her blog, how we don't need to be victims of our disease. A very good read.

Jennifer is an incredible Health Activist and blogger at Understanding Invisible Illness. Her recent blog carnival was a huge success. Watch her blog to learn about other blogs, or just for her wonderful insights. She's a gem!

I'm actually not sure how many followers, Gary B. Rollman (Professor of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, London, ON N6A 5C2) has, but his blog is a must follow for any one dealing with pain. He blogs at Psychology of Pain.


  1. Aw gosh! Again, I am so honored. And above all, congratulations to you, you certainly earned it!!

  2. You are so sweet to give me this award. I am without a mac imploded and won't be fixed till the end of this week. But I will try to beg, borrow someone's computer to honor this award. But don't think me neglectful if I don't get the opportunity until after my computer is fixed. Thank you so much :-)
