I had honestly never read anything of yours, and you can see from my work that I always cite other writers whenever I use their sentences - and I would gladly cite your article if I was actually using it.
So, yes, it really is a coincidence.
In fact, this (normalizing our abuse) is a very common subject on Medium; chances are there will be similarities. I had no idea but when I submitted this piece to Invisible Illness, they even left a note saying "it just feels like something you see a lot of on Medium" and asked me to make some small changes.
When we've gone through similar experiences and, as a consequence, view certain things through similar eyes, this type of coincidences happen, I guess.
Now that I know your work, I look forward to reading more of your articles.
Wish you all the best.
