BADD 2008! Soon!

Hurray, it's that time of year again. May 1 has so much more meaning since the birth of Blogging Against Disablism Day

Two years ago it was this event and occasional and very selective blog reading in the months around it that sparked my interest in, well to be honest, life and the outside world again whilst I was still in the depths of a deep depression and physical meltdown.

Really, it was that important. Reading blogs on disablism, disability awareness and most importantly the ups and downs of living with a disability meant that I was not alone. So I started to emerge from depression and now I regularly subject people to my wiffling here, and occasionally at Ouch. Life has changed and writing again is life affirming. It was a joy (and that is sincerely meant) to be able to contribute to BADD last year, and it will be a joy to do so again this year. Goldfish many people love you for doing this.

Goldfish, sometimes even I forget how important reading blogs was in my recovery from depression all those months ago. BADD is a reminder of how far I've come as well as a great bursting forth of opinion, observation and just excellent writing.

May 1 will always be special :-)
