“It took a whole damn year to repair my body…. It took a whole damn year.”
Last Thanksgiving I was on crutches. It was spring before I could walk a mile, summer before I could walk 3 at pace. Now there are very few days that I hurt. Chronic pain isn’t a good companion and I’m glad to see the witch go.
This song by Mary J Blige grabbed me the first time I heard it. The video is about domestic violence, but I think the lyrics speak to anyone who has been wounded– physically or emotionally.
