I Have Been Given An Award!

Wow!  I am overcome, and happy and embarrassed and proud as well.

A fellow blogger, who writes of her immense struggle with not just depression but also withdrawal from Prozac, has given me the Liebster Award.   You can find her amazing, inspirational blog at Prozac Withdrawal.  I thank her so much!

Well digging around I find that the word liebster is German, and means 'dearest' or similar!  How nice is that!   The idea is for us to pass this award on, to help bring attention to our new, or fairly new blogs - usually ones with not many followers.  I can relate to that!

There are a few simple rules, as I understand it, which are:
  • Thank the person that nominated you on your blog and link back to them.

  • Nominate up to five other blogs for the award.

  • Let them know via a comment on their blog.

  • Post the award on your blog.  

Aha! Now let the fun begin!  I see I have fulfilled rule one.  Now to find five other blogs for the award!  

Not in any order are my choices, most of which are, at least in part, about depression and the battle of the black dog:

Dance Without Sleeping - Because, just because!

Flossing the Cat - How could anyone resist? 

Love in the Nest - Amazing blog, amazing blogger

Adventures of a Middle-Aged Matron - Gentle, inspirational lady

Dribbling Pensioner  - Funny and outrageous!
