Yet when my younger sister was diagnosed with a brain tumour and I spent every other day at the hospital and I cared for her in many physical ways from feeding to advocating for her with the pain team, I still didn’t feel this label belonged to me.
But I also felt that I needed the help a label brings.
Without a label I did not have the words to share my story.
(today I’m posting over at Chronic-Joy.org).

Congratulations Emily! I have nominated you for the Liebster Award!!!
Read more details here: https://blindinjusticeblog.com/2018/06/15/another-liebster-award/
Thanks Brendan! Much appreciated – and I enjoyed reading your list of the other blogs you nominated 🙂 I am undecided whether I will participate as I want to stay true to the theme of this blog, but perhaps I will over on my personal wordpress blog!
You’re welcome! It’s totally up to you as to how you handle it…each blogger (or at east each blogger who sticks to a specific theme) has a different way of handling off topic posts, myself included.
