DoILookSick WINS Best In Show!

GUYS. I don’t even know what to say right now. This post is long overdue, I know. I still just can’t even believe this.

I was so thrilled to be a finalist, I’ve really wanted this since I first began blogging. But there was a part of me that was a little disappointed. Best in Show? I wished I had been a finalist for a smaller category – you know, one I had a chance at actually WINNING. But that was okay. I was still totally thrilled to be a finalist and get the cool finalist package/confetti explosion in the mail.

But come on. By internet standards, this blog is VERY small. The blogs I was up against seemed comparable with my readership size, but they boasted a lot more awards and two of my competitors were even finalists in MULTIPLE CATEGORIES of the WEGO Health awards. You should definitely check them all out, they seem really cool. Clearly cooler than me in my own summation, haha.

So I was casually watching along while doing a phone interview for a writing agent (got it) and putting together a resume (that’s already gotten me a job) and on top of all that excitement, I see MY NAME pop up as the WINNER? WHAT?!

It was an awesome day for me. So I spent the rest of the day singing this:

Thank you guys. ❀



About rachelmeeks

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.
