A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

New discovery from 2007, could've helped.

Growing up I always had problems with my one ankle not being able to support itself most of the time, nothing was done until '05 and that ended up making it worse and adding more problems to it.
Last week I was finally granted access to all my medical records and I got the last of them yesterday.
Apparently back in 2007 it was said that I needed to have another surgery that would have made it so I could basically function normally instead of having to use assistance all the time.
I never had that surgery, it was never even given as an option to me because my guardian didn't believe I needed it and now I'm not eligible for it anymore.
