Strong Person Award

The Quiet Borderline has most generously created a new award for all the blogging mentalists out there and I was honoured to have this award bestowed upon me. Thank you so much Quiet, you are an inspiration and much loved in the blogosphere!

Here are the rules for accepting the Strong Person Award:

1. Make sure to add in the text (below) and image (above) to spread the love and add how little or how much you want!

You heard me right! You are not weak, you are strong. You are not a failure, you are a fighter! This goes out to all mentalists. And it’s a gift from The Quiet Borderline to you all – Please spread the love. Mental health is not something to be sneered at and it deserves much more respect. Stop the stigmatising.

2. Name your diagnoses – Stand loud and proud! You can tell us a little about them also if you’d like. How you’re affected by these diagnoses and how you are fighting your way out of them. (see below)

3. Add a photo of yourself, or some abstract picture that represents you, anything you like! (below)

4. Send this on to as many, yes, as many, people that you like. It can be five, ten, fifty. (below)

I have only one diagnosis Borderline Personality Disorder; diagnosed in 2010 after many years of ups and downs finally everything made sense, now after  an awful 2011 I am finally getting ‘well’ and 2012 is turning into the best year I have had for many years.

Playing pool – one of my favourite things 🙂

Finally to present the award to as many deserving mentalists as possible – first of all I want to say if you haven’t yet received this award or are not on the list below then please accept this award for yourself now as well, it is for all of you! 😀

    1. You’re welcome. If you just copy the rules and image into a post (from my post) how you would normally prepare one for your blog and include the details of who you are nominating, then leave them a comment with a link to your post 🙂


  1. Thank you for the such kind words 😉 I’m flattered I really am.

    I love all the votes you made! Spreading the love BIG TIME!

    All the best xx


    1. Hi Ellie, you’re welcome, when you get awards like this you need to copy the rules from the person who gave it you, write a post and pass it on to others with the rules (the rules are above in my post here) 🙂 xx


  2. No one can give directions to a place they have never been (my quote) and you are a leading light along a dark road to reclaiming the light. Congratulations
