A lack of trust & honesty

In 15 years of hospital visits, having my legs measured was the consultation. After a few years you begin to think there’s nothing else wrong.

Throughout that time I also didn’t think I needed to look outside the box because there seemed to be no cause for concern from my doctors or family. When I look back of course, I can’t believe that I was …

My podiatry consultation

A recent trip to the podiatrist has brought back some early memories I had disbanded with. I was hoping being asked to walk up and down the room without my shoes and socks on would have been easier this time around.

Coming to terms with injustice

Do we ever come to terms with injustice, or does it depend on what those injustices are? Although injustices are made, and apologies aren’t always forthcoming, I believe with understanding we can think about and come to terms with injustice.

We can wipe the slate clean and move forward, but for that to happen understanding must be part of that equation. As far as the universe is concerned, we will always be encouraged to find the understanding …
