This carnival is all about first.
I wanted to make this easy to join in. We are such a diverse group. What we all have in common is blogging so I would love everyone to connect in this Disability Carnival with their first blog post. (ordinal number 1: coming before all others in time or order; earliest; 1st: the first post on your site)
If you don't find this appealing then please pick a first to write about from the definitions below:
- 'first things first'
important matters should be dealt with before other things: I suggest we get our priorities right—first things first
- 'from the (very) first'
from the beginning: she realized it from the first
- 'at first - at the beginning'
in the initial stage or stages: at first Hugo tried to be calm
- 'first and last' everything considered; above all else; altogether: First and last, it is important to know oneself
- Synonyms of first: earliest, foremost, inaugural, initial, leadoff, maiden, original, pioneer, premier, virgin
So if this is your inaugural attempt to join in the Disability Carnival what do you do?
Just post here, in comments, the link to your first post ever or the post you have written about first. In your post please link back to here. Let everyone know you are joining in. Thanks. The closing date will be March 10.

I guess the only thing I can say is ramps and lifts, at least they are the only things that make my world more accessible. You see I can walk (though not the same as before and I can no longer dance or get down on the floor with my grandchildren) but if I walk too far or up steps the next day I have to lie horizontal. I have a muscle disorder, a form of muscular distrophy that means all my muscles are extremely weak (some more than others).
I also think my main fave thing of accessibilty is my new laptop as I could no longer sit up at the computer due to muscle pain in my neck and shoulders and jaw. With the laptop I can lie down and connect with others all around the blogosphere and they cannot see me and do not know I am lying down and am in constant pain all over. This is how I become Not My Disease on a daily basis.
