I defiantly refuse to give my mental illness permission to dominate my life the way it once did. I will prove that my illness is only a small part of who I am. Inspiration and encouragement from the blogging community has been vital in keeping me going. I continue to be comforted by the kindness, the compassion, that's on the other side of my computer screen.Life is Good, most thoughtfully passed on the Super Sweet Blogging Award to me. I was touched by what she noted about me. Just like Tina, I am passionate about removing the unfair stigma that still surrounds mental health issues
Okay, here goes. I'm supposed to answer the following five questions and then pass on the award to five real sweet type bloggers.
Question 1 : Cookies or cake? Answer : I guess, cake. Especially upside down cake. Yes, I ate an upside down cake. Or did I eat a cake, upside down? Sorry, I'm getting confused.....
Question 2 : Chocolate or vanilla? Answer : Fairtrade Chocolate, of any kind.
Question 3 : Favourite sweet treat? Answer : Spotted Dick and custard. Don't even think of an innuendo!
Question 4 : When do you crave sweet things the most? Answer : Usually when it's time to get some sleep and I've just brushed my teeth.
Question 5 : Sweet nickname? Answer : Mr. Awesome, um, Chelsea Canadian.
Now this is where I'm going to once again, break the rules. I've mentioned before that I really find passing on awards a real dilemma. If I pass it onto that person, do they accept awards? If I overlook somebody who has been very kind to me, will I hurt their feelings? Which means, I embrace the award from Tina, but will let you help yourself to the award, if you want to display it on your site.
And thus, with the celebration, we received the gift of the, "GOLDEN SCALE AWARD".. A gift that shall be forever treasured.
Penny and I were grateful to have been included amongst such wonderful bloggers. We're deeply touched by the goodness of Father Dragon's heart and soul. Bless you for this, Al Diaz. Your ethos, testimony that we truly can be here for each other. We must believe, collectively, we can be a powerful force to bring further understanding and respect for the great diversity of this fragile planet.

Thank you again for this. There's magic on both sides of the computer screen.
