What’s in a Name?

Old phrase but for me, my name means hurt. Moving or changing a name doesn’t mean you forget or can leave the old baggage behind. Just not having to say or write my name would simply ease the pain. A fresh start for the last part of life’s journey. To spend the rest of my retirement with the ability to smile and have a new name- peace. Not being able to smile or get the dental care I need just adds to the grief of living with a name that just hurts.
