It seems every day another woman I know is getting mysteriously sick, and then sicker, and then all at once we are watching our bodies decay and break down and fail us and being told this is just something we have to live with now, a legacy of trauma manifested in perpetual sickness that forever changes how we exist in the world and I think God, wasn’t it enough just to be hurt to begin with? When do we stop paying the price for what happened to us?
