As I sipped my tea this morning, I reflected on a simple yet meaningful recent encounter. I was on the phone with an old friend that I hadn’t spoken with in quite some time. Everything in the conversation was normal and she shared that she and her family were "fine."
Before the age of 21, I had 4 orthopedic surgeries. Not only was I told that the injuries were the result of having something wrong with my body, but also that my only options were surgery and/or medications
