“Here’s the truth about healing. It’s a fucking myth—an idea they try to sell you on to keep you from killing yourself. You love someone and they leave, but they never entirely go away. You feel them there, acutely, like an amputated limb.”
Paula Garner, Phantom Limbs

“There was life before you, and then life with you. There wasn’t supposed to be life after you.”
Paula Garner, Phantom Limbs

“I didn’t have room inside me for any more pain. As it turned out, though, I was wrong about that.”
Paula Garner, Phantom Limbs
