Top 25: My 500th post

It's my 500th post. We're 6 weeks shy of my 3rd blogiversary, something I probably won't commemorate, because I'm doing it now. I noticed 2 weeks ago that blogger now has a feature to display your top posts (up to 10) on your sidebar. I almost did, but then I realized that those are not my top 10 posts, although I think 2 are listed below. They're the top 10 most likely to be clicked on through a google search and then clicked off. Not ones people stick around to read. So, I've decided in honor of my 750th post (I'm planning ahead) I'm going to list my top 75 posts. They're all very personal to me and emotionally charged.

This first group will be my top 25 posts from December 2007 - September 2009. My next group, posted in April on the date of my 600th post, will be my top 25 posts from October 2009 - October 2010. My last group of 25 posts will of course be posted as my 750th post, In December 2011, and will contain my top 25 posts from November 2010 - December 2011.


So now here is the list, from oldest to newest...

What Does Disability Mean to Me? (my first real post) December 2007

I was getting ready to get in the shower when a seemingly random train of thought interrupted the mindless spacing out I engage in several times a day. I think I like myself better (at least somewhat) ...

What Does Bowling Have in Common with Art? December 2007

I have CP. In addition to the fact that I can't walk fast and that people can hear me coming from a mile away because I'm so heavy on my feet, or the fact that I seem to be incapable of eating like a ...

Label Jars? December 2007

I'm home alone with nothing to do (other then trying to locate the spare pair of sneekers I keep here), so I thought I would write an early blog post. The above picture appeared both on the slide for ...

Medications January 2008

I have written previously about my recent sleep problems. They haven't gotten any better and I've decided that I just do not want to be doing what I've been doing--sleeping pills. I agreed to try sleeping ...

Why Aren't There Child Life Specialists for Adults? January 2008

If you are reading this blog and are under 30 (or are over 30 and got lucky) or are the parent of a child with a disability that requires hospitalizations you have hopefully met a child life specialist ...

I'm Tired February 2008 (I'm so glad I don't feel like that anymore, but at the time I thought it was the most powerful thing I'd ever written)

I’m tired of being tired
I’m tired of having to fight all the time
I’m tired of having to struggle
I’m tired of not being in control
I’m tired of trying to be in control
I’m tired of being patronized
I’m ...

SEX: The Elephant in the Room

Over the last 8 months that I have been blogging here there has been a fair amount of discussion on sex, as there should be. Everyone loves good sex, don't they? But no one ever wants to talk about sex ...

The Worst Words August 2008

Often what you write is inspired by what you read out in the blogshpere, as is the case with this post. I've been trying to catch up on my blog reading and I'd have to be living under a rock not to have ...

A Good Haircut... September 2008

seems to be all that I need to fall in love with myself.. For the last few years haircuts have put me in a rather good mood, but this time it seems to be particularly so. I'd been walking around for a ...

Congratulations to ME!!!
October 2008

Friday is my one year anniversary!!!!!! One year anniversary of what you ask? The one year anniversary of when I finally decided to start taking my meds. This is the biggest deal to me since the first ...

Mental Illness: Illness or Chronic Condition?
November 2008

I was lucky to get the chance to do a poster presentation yesterday (along w/faculty) at the Association of University Centers on Disability's annual conference. I'VE GOT MY MOJO BACK NOW! I'm currently ...

I'm Thankful November 2008

Well, it isn't thursday, but I'll be too busy to post on "thankful thursday." Some people wonder why my blog posts are so personal, so raw, why I'd open up my heart to perfect strangers. This blog is ...

Art: Something Else Therapeutic/My Blogiversary & 100th Post December 2008

Sometime in November I realized that I had written 93 posts and that I could time things perfectly to write my 100th post on my blogiversary. I have nothing really to say that I haven't already said ...

I Found a Guy and I Lost him. Or, It Isn't a Big Deal January 2009

So a long time ago I put my best friend's boyfriend on the task of finding me a date. 23 and I've never been on a date before. PATHETIC.

Fast forward to Sept, one weekend night. I get a call from a bar ...

My Testimony In Favor of HB281

I mentioned in a previous post that I found out that a bill was being introduced into the Maryland Legislature in favor of Disability Rights/History education in schools. I wish I could have done a bit ..

What About ME!?!?!
March 2009

I feel rather odd not having blogged for a whole entire week. I think I ODed on the whole blogging thing in Jan/Feb and I need a break, even though I wrote down a long list of things I want to blog ...

My Childhood was on TV Last Night March 2009

And I don't know how I feel about that. I have to sort my feelings out, and I don't know how. My shrink and I don't really do that.

It all started with Table for 12. A half hr Christmas episode. Eh. I'm ...

My Whole Life is a 'Happy Accident'
April 2009

No, not one of those kind of accidents (I did say happy, didn't I?). [picture to the left is a car crash] And it wasn't an accident that I was born or that I have CP. No hospital negligence there. So ...

Ableism Where I'd Least Expect it: BADD 2009 May 2009

AYS Day One Continued: Anger, Emotions & Anxiety

Some people might have noticed that I tend to pick one word, sentence, or phrase out of a whole long thing and burn it in my brain. I would look up a post and link to it, but my brain is tired and that's ...

The Book Jacket to my Memoir (Written in 2003) July 2009

For some odd reason I felt compelled to visit my geocities site that I started in the 7th grade and hasn't been touched in years. Good thing I did because it turns out that Yahoo is shutting geocities ...

Therapy (of the Mind Kind) September 2009

Yesterday I left a comment on this post at Everyone Needs Therapy. The post itself didn't lend to me commenting at all. I felt compelled to comment about people's comments. Start reading people's comments ...
