Why A Law Will Not Stop Me From Loving You, By Jessica Niziolek

In 2015 I began to see writings online about a law that affects the disability community and their benefits if they ever decided to marry.

I May Have Lost You, But I Found Myself, And That Is Enough.

This morning I woke up, still feeling that familiar sting in my heart. But there was something in me that was unravelling. I feel relieved. I didn’t think I would say this after everything that has happened, but I feel free.

I’m no longer waiting for you to make plans about us, no longer waiting for you to decide on what you want out of us. No longer waiting for you to make up your mind. No longer waiting for a message or a call to come out of nowhere. No longer dreading for the lows to come after the temporary highs.
