Common Topics

Life is Good Award!

A big thanks to CHRONICLYsILLy for giving me the Life is Good Award! Check out her blog for very creative, uplifting posts about living with lupus.

Following are the 10 questions Life is Good Award recipients are asked to complete:

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I blog semi-anonymously and think that is the right choice for me.  With putting some of my medical information out there, I feel it is better safe(r) than sorry.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
One experience where I pushed myself harder than was best for me was going to a large university as a full-time student for four years. I was in horrible pain all the time, did not sleep well and pushed myself to the max. After graduating and starting a new job I realized how many less migraines, flare-ups and other pains I was having.  I did not realize how much better I could have felt if I didn’t push myself so hard physically and mentally. It was only 3 months into my freshmen year when I got fibromyalgia and there weren’t too many resources at the time. Instead of giving into my pain or slowing down I just pushed through, the only way I knew at the time.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
A woman trying to do the most she can with and during her life

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
I honestly don’t know if I have one. I drink lots of really cold ice water though.

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
I watch The Ellen Show for laughs. I always feel a little more happy after watching one of the episodes.

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
Of course, I’m not even 30 yet! I better accomplish more! One of the things I want to accomplish is raising more awareness and understanding about fibromyalgia.

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?
I don’t know if I was an OVERachiever, but I certainly was an achiever, as well as being very social. Sometimes teachers thought I talked too much during class – shame on me! =)

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?
Well, as soon as I read the question I pictured The Helpful Hubby and I standing at the alter on our wedding day. That day was something I’d dreamed of my whole life and it had come to fruition with an amazing man.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I’m comfortable sharing about myself because I am writing a resource that I wish had been there for me to read, especially early in my diagnosis.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Talk on the phone to a good friend – many of my close friends do not live in the same state as I do. This makes me cherish the time I’m on the phone with them, catching up on our lives.

I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing a little more about me. I now pass this award on to 6 other bloggers. I share the Life Is Good Award with:
