I want to post chronologically, telling a story, but I now understand (a bit late) that this is not an option. Do you have any recommendations for getting around this limitation? Having one or two sticky posts doesn’t really help when I’m wanting to use the blog as a journey through my experience.

WordPress by default shows posts in reverse chronological order (newest at top) and that cannot be reversed. For returning visitors, this very convenient since they can see the latest post without having to page down through page after page of hundreds of posts they have already read. See here for the option of creating a book-like structure > http://en.support.wordpress.com/write-a-book/ Perhaps that will work for you.
