We pressed pause the day we had to leave Syria. The shock never goes away
November 27, 2017|
I am a medical doctor and a proud Syrian woman. I was born and grew up in Damascus. We stayed for as long as we could but were forced out in 2012. We pressed pause the day we left. Since then, I have divided my life across different countries. My children are in Denmark and I work in Lebanon. I feel as if our lives are on hold. Many days I do not know how to feel. My only dream is to go back and start from where we left off. I am not ready to move on.
