I was cut adrift from a lifelong dream, the sure anchor that had carried me through long years of study.
When I lost my leg, my whole world was turned upside down. This is my story…
I began to equate love with being thin. Still, on the outside, I worked hard to make it look like I had it all together.
I learned the language of silence. Keep your head down. Don’t say a word. Try to be invisible. Maybe if they forget you’re here it will stop. It didn’t stop.
The constant stress and ridicule by a manager, who didn't want me to look better than her, made me physically ill.
Never dated, in my 30s, and OK with it.
People can influence how we see ourselves. How much should others’ opinions matter? What happens when they begin to matter too much?
We all mask our feelings now and then. Are you performing the way everyone thinks you should? Do you wonder if anyone really knows you anymore?
