Dear Nadia,

Brave! Definitely brave.

I know that when we have pain, we BECOME our pain. We become our weakest links, walking, talking wounds. And extreme physical pain affects mental, emotional & spiritual parts of us, because we are all one, part & parcel.

So, going from being a private person to opening up about something so painful (on every level) takes every kind of courage. All guts! I salute you, it’s heroic. I would have fallen apart & stayed apart.
