I have been nominated for the Disability Blogger Award designed by Chronillicles for the niches of Disability, Chronic Illness, Mental Illness, and Special needs. 



  1. Thank your nominator: And thank you Chronillicles for the nomination. I really appreciate it.
  2. Recognize the creator of the award… also Chronillicles. So thank you for creating this award to show appreciation for bloggers in our niches.
  3. Use logo
  4. Answer nominators questions
  5. Write 5-15 of your own questions
  6. Nominate 5-15 other bloggers within these niches
  7. Comment on their posts to let them know you nominated them

The Questions

  1. Why did you start writing and why in this niche? I wanted to share my experiences and find a community out there in the world that could relate to my experiences. I wrote about chronic illness and chronic pain because it was something I was struggling with and I knew others were too. However, I also have an author writing blog for my fiction work… that is rather random.
  2. What are your 5 top tips on coping? Pacing, rest, self-care, de-stressing, and focusing on well-being. Basically, my main point is that we have to think about and focus on our entire well-being as a whole. Every factor plays a role in how we cope with adversity. And the more we learn different ways to do this the better we can cope with the unpredictability that is illness.
  3. Where would your dream holiday be and why? I would like to go to Italy. Partially for art and architecture and partly because my spouse wants to see this area where the caves have Bioluminescence.
  4. Are you an early bird or a night owl? I am a night owl. But then I developed vertigo which is frankly exhausting so now my insomnia has partially disappeared and I get up insanely early. It is weird, eh? I am a night owl by heart. But now too tired to get through the day even.
  5. What is your go-to comfort food? I have this awesome homemade cheese and macaroni recipe that is my go-to for comfort food. It is so good.
  6. What is your favourite movie or TV show? That is a hard one. Favourite series would be Supernatural or Firefly. Movies I would be hard pressed to say whether it would be the Star Wars series, LOTR or any Marvel movie.
  7. What is your favourite social media app/site and why? Likely Facebook because I have support groups on there and my Page where I can post interesting content I have made… which I find fun to come up with.

And I nominate these fine bloggers…

  1. Invisibly Me
  2. Counting my spoons
  3. A journey through the fog
  4. My medical musings
  5. Brain lesions & me

Questions for nominees to answer:

  1. What is your favourite pain or illness distraction and why?
  2. Do you have a creative outlet?
  3. What is your favourite book and tell me why
  4. When you are in a mental funk what do you do?
  5. When was your last vacation and how was it?

  1. Congrats on the very well-deserved award! It’s fascinating reading your answers – guess what? I’ve never actually eaten cheese and macaroni! I know mac & cheese is a favourite for a lot of people but I don’t even fully know what it is, I feel like I’m missing out. Thank you so much for the kind nomination  ♥

      1. I know, I’ve lived such a sheltered life! But what actually is macaroni? Is it pasta? Believe it or not, some people strangely thing I’m intelligent, and when I ask questions like this, I really don’t know how they can think that!

      2. 😂🤣😂 yes! Macaroni is just pasta. But the key to a good Mac n cheese is the cheese! You can’t just use any, that’s why I need Nikki’s recipe because I’ve never made it from scratch. I get mine frozen at the supermarket! Or, in my college days they sold 3 boxes for a dollar! Boil the noodles, add the dry cheese and milk and wha-lah Mac n cheese!

  2. Hi! This was such an interesting post, I loved reading your answers! Self-care is such an important part of living with chronic and mental illnesses. As for your dream holiday, Italy is amazing and bioluminescence sounds so cool! Congrats on the nomination! Georgina from Chronillicles 💙
