Very exciting: TheAtlantic.com has published my story, “The Escape.” It’s the true account of sneaking out of a hospital shortly after my brain surgery to go to a party.

    I found this site after reading your story in the Atlantic (online). I love it. I became physically disabled via a progressive, degenerative neuromuscular disease at the age of 35 (5 years ago). I am able to relate to a lot of what you talk about and I enjoy reading and thinking about each entry.

    Nina- congratulations on the article! So great to see your work- you’ve come such aong way from obscure cultural events. Speaking of, come by the hospital to visit the next time you’re in DC. Again, congratulations.
