23 years

Today is our wedding anniversary. 23 years of love and 23 years of indescribable physical pain and repeated paralysis and torment, 23 years of speaking up and fighting for appropriate help. 

How do we celebrate? We light a candle and give thanks for our love which has grown despite the horrendous circumstances and medical negation experienced down the decades. 

We hold on to hope that next year will be better, that the truth will be revealed, that understanding will manifest and justice be found.

An anniversary then both of loss and hope. We pray for strength to carry on. We ask for healing. We want answers. May this be the year.
