This truly has been a wonderful and humbling week at butyoudontlooksick.com.

They say things come just when you need them most.
I have been having a rough time lately. You would think you would "get
used to" living with lupus after 16 years, but you don't. You might get
better at it, you might cry less, but it still sucks. Add a cold to lupus
and it has been a rough week.

So tonight was one of those nights when you are tired of fighting, tired
of being sick, and wondering why I write this site and keep this
www.butyoudontlooksick.com community together. Can one person really help?
Can one person make a difference? Maybe I am just in a funk lately. These
contests seem to come at just the right time to lift my spirits and to be
reminded of why I started butyoudontlooksick.com. So people do not feel so
alone, so patients can share tips and resources, and so much more.

This week started off with www.butyoudontlooksick.com being a finalist in
Medgadget's 2008 Medical Weblog Award in the category of Best Patient's
Weblog. I was honored beyond words not only to be recognized for the work
I am trying to do, but also for the company of hard working creative
health bloggers. For those who voted already- thank you! Seeing the
numbers of people who have taken time out of thier day to vote for us
fills my heart.
As I saw the numbers of votes rise, my mood lifted too. I found myself
checkin the numbers, because it felt so good to know someone cared enough
to click. If you haven't voted yet, please take 2 minutes to vote. It
literally is 2 clicks, and it will help this site become more recognized
and reach even more patients and readers like yourself.

Please vote here:

Well, I also found out this week that I was nominated and listed in the
top 10 for The People's HealthBlogger Awards!! As of this posting, I went
from not even knowing I was in the running, to being in the top 10. It is
amazing! Now, I thought to myself... imagine if I actually told the
readers of this site about that contest too, maybe we can be in the top 5,
or heck who knows... #1. (why not reach high?) :)

*I will admit that this award requires you to sign up with your email and
a name, it is a short 2 minute form to cast your vote, but I like to be
honest that it will require an email address and a reason to vote. "I like
christine because she rocks!" is just fine with me :) Whatever your
reason, if you have 2 minutes, I would really appreciate the vote.

Now the funny thing about this contest is that even though it might take a
minute longer to cast your vote, I and the rest of the world seeing the
contest, will see your screenname and your reason for voting. For this
website it might mean new readers inspired by something you wrote, why you
like our message boards, or our posts, or our newsletter etc. Selfishly, I
have spent tonight on the couch with my laptop filling my soul with the
good karma you guys have sent me through your votes. I am truly humbled by
some of what the voters have written. You have inspired me to keep
writing, keep volunteering, and keep working to help others. I feel better
tonight then I have in a long time.

If you can please do me the favor of helping me by taking the time to
vote, I would really appreciate it. Kharma is a beautiful thing.


Thank you.

Love and Spoons,
Christine
