I am honoured to say that I’ve been nominated for The Annual Bloggers Bash 2019 Awards!
The award I have been nominated for is ‘Best Personal Development Blog’, which recognises those who write and blog about mental health and well-being, motivation, depression, anxiety, self-care and more. As a big part of the thyroid puzzle is mental health and well-being, with so many of us also experiencing mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, it is something I write about quite a bit. And feel that we should talk about more. The awards provide the opportunity for online community members to thank and support the bloggers they follow and find helpful.
Keeping authenticity and honesty behind everything I do as The Invisible Hypothyroidism, I am always open about my own thyroid journey, including all the mental health struggles I have faced, and this is what makes The Invisible Hypothyroidism so unique. I’m glad that the nomination for this award, again, shines light on the connection between thyroid disease and mental health.
Voting for the awards open in April, so I’ll update you on where that happens once I know. I’d just like to take this moment to thank you all for your support in the work that I do.
