Is what they told me."
That @djolder story I just tweeted? Read it. What keeps you here? For me dancing is a big part of it. I feel safe, centered, not broken.....
...not disabled, me. At least for a little while. Even though I'm deliberately on display, I'm rooted in the music and movement.
That tether is why it's worth it to pay in pain later; without dancing I doubt love, friends, family, etc would keep me fighting.
