I started blogging a few years ago to share my fibromyalgia journey in the hopes of encouraging, helping, or inspiring others. I try to maintain a positive attitude despite this sometimes debilitating condition. My blogging journey has been slow and not always steady due these limitations, so this nomination caught me completely off-guard. I am honored, thrilled, and grateful for being nominated for a 2018 WEGO Health Award for the “Best Kept Secret.” It truly gives validation to what I am trying to accomplish in my little corner of the blog-o-sphere and Twitter-verse.
Here is my nomination:
Like the byline of her blog Cynthia is always positive and ‘Finding Inspiration in Everyday Life’. She blogs about interesting topics relating to Fibromyalgia regularly — Lesley
So a huge THANK YOU to Lesley for recognizing me and what I am trying to do!
WEGO Health Awards
The WEGO Health Awards recognizes people making a positive impact. The “program was created to recognize and honor those making a difference in the online health community. It provides the opportunity for community members to thank and support the Patient Leaders they admire.”
“A Patient Leader uses their own health journey to raise awareness, share knowledge and help others. They leverage social media to amplify their voice, connect with peers, and build community. They are the thought leaders and transformers industry leaders turn to for insights and expertise they need to build a more patient-centered, consumer-driven health care ecosystem.”
I Need Your Help

This celebration is for all of those that blog, tweet, and share their healthcare journey in the hopes of bettering the lives of others. I also encourage you to recognize and nominate other Patient Leaders within fibromyalgia and chronic pain communities for their endless efforts and advocacy work! Visit awards.wegohealth.com for more information.
It’s funny that I was nominated for the “Best Kept Secret” since I kept my blog a secret for quite some time from my friends and family. But I realized that keeping my blog invisible does nothing to help shine that light on fibromyalgia. It’s only been this year that I have been more open about my health advocacy role, to try to make this condition more visible.
I so greatly appreciate you for reading, following, liking, sharing, and/or endorsing me.
