This one, conquering your fear, was my favorite (so far, as I'm a new reader and obviously haven't had a chance to read all of your posts yet haha!)
I like it as I've dealt with some pretty massive centipede related fears over a few years of infested apartments. Eventually I had to take control of it lest I never feel comfortable or even mildly okay in my own home... Happy to say I'm now centipede and anxiety free about it! (moving helped, but that's not the only reason).

Easy! I loved reading your "30 things about my invisible illness you may not know" (http://www.chronicallycreative.net/2010/09/30-things-about-my-invisible-illness.html).

I also have an invisible illness (rheumatoid arthritis) and I related to so many things you said in that post. Here are a few of your posts I loved. I know I said I wouldn't post on every single one of them, but now you've given me a second chance... I might!

#5: so annoying! what makes it worse is when people throw in the line "but you're too young to have arthritis". Grr. I know people don't realise they are being insensitive, but oh!, they are!

#6: ditto! some mornings i just want to stay in bed, especially when im in pain. but i know i have to get up and be somewhat active to start feeling better. but fatigue + morning stiffness + 9am uni lectures is the worst!

#13: sounds amazing! good luck with it all :)

#14: me too :) :)

#15: i know what you mean. i feel like i miss out on so much with my friends, not only because im sore and tired, but also because i dont drink, theyve stopped inviting me when they go out to town or on weekends away. im hoping they get over this stage soon :)

#17: yup! grr.

#18: well, i never went for runs before but what annoys me most is that everyone tells you that you have to be active but no one tells you how to know how much pain youll be in after.

#20: go scrapbooking and card making!! :)

#23: once again, i know they mean well, but grr!!

Thanks again for your great reads Emily, I'm really happy I found your blog :)

"Spreading the Sticky Note Love" is my fav for several reasons: I love that you shared your messages; and I also participated in guerilla sticky note tactics leaving them on the windows of spaces under renovation (everyone peeks in to see what's up); on the train schedule signs at the train stations I stop at when I go shopping (some did disappear and I trully hope they were taken by folks with chronic illness) and other public places.
I enjoyed reading where you left your notes, your comments on invisible illness week, and your committment (even if post (excuse the pun) the actual event -- just like me and my fatigue, you got around to it when you could: the important thing is that you did! You truly embraced the each one, reach one through your post-it-notes, and your blog!
Hope you get lots of enteries to choose from. And, thanks for the idea: I really should try a giveaway too!
