healing is not linear

December 5, 2016

a heading on a post in feministing by Barbara sostaita

I have read the post a few times

it is a valuable reminder

just like life is not linear

healing is the same

the expectation is

once a person does a practice

a health regime

a medicine

or healing on any level

that there is a linear trajectory

in terms of healing

and I know from my experience

that this is not the case mostly

but I forget sometimes

like life

healing is



and just because things appear

to be changing

they can plateau

or a person can take a step or two


this is the nature of life and healing

I think western medicine ideology

plays a big part in this myth


though I work in this venue

this is not the avenue I travel

personally for the most part

I need reminders constantly
