“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

People's Health Blogger Awards

While visiting Sue's blog today, I noticed that she is up for a People's Health Blogger Award. I decided to vote for her, and I am putting a "Vote for Sue" widget on my sidebar. Sue's blog is one of the first I found when I discovered I had CFS and started blogging about it. I was so new and lacking in knowledge when it comes to this disease! Sue was always there to open my eyes and show me different paths to understanding just what was going on with me. It was from her that I learned about post-exertional malaise, orthostatic intolerance, and LDN. And she seemed a "success" story. Even though she still has CFS, she seems to manage it so well, and she still has a life! That is what I aspire to. So, in a way, I would say Sue has been my CFS mentor, and she has become a very understanding friend. I wish her the best of luck!

Amen and amen to everything you've said. Couldn't have said it better myself. Heading off to vote!

Yep - Ditto for me as well - for everything you said!

I echo everyone's comments. I voted for her too. Good idea about the widget! Sue's was the first blog I read too after being diagnosed.

Oh, my gosh! Here I am, just trying to catch up on blogs after another long week on the couch, and I found you had posted about ME! I'm so touched, Shelli, by everything you said and the comments left here, too. I really appreciate all the kind words - what a lift after a rough month!

And, for the record, I get the same back from you and all the other CFS bloggers, too. Your support and encouragement have helped me more than you'll ever know. I couldn't cope nearly as well without this wonderful network of support!

Thank you for all of that and for posting a link to vote for me!
