Bree, you've perfectly nailed why representation matters so much in media. Whether it's nerve damage, mental illness, gender, sexuality, race, etc. — it's nice to feel acknowledged, to be able to relate with a character because you, quite literally, share their pain.

Here's wishing you the best going forward. I hope you're able to find some comfort <3
