Birdsong's a Vet!

My first post didn't make I am trying again.

*placing Medal around your neck...with a kiss to both cheeks*...Congratulations, Birdsong, for your arrival to Vetville!  You made it!  One year year affair free.

I was here throughout your entire journey.  I know it was not easy, but you did what you had to do...with a lot of rearranging of your life and some heavy-duty get here.  

You openly shared yourself and always reached out to support others.  You've been such an asset to this Board.

I am so proud of you.  You rock!



It was the link to the medal that caused a problem with the first I am going to post this and then go in and edit to add link to medal.

..and the crowds in the stands begin to roar...can you hear them?

  The difference between who you are and who you imagine yourself to be, is what you do.

I hear all of you, and I wouldn't have made it here without you. I will never.forget the holidays last year. This year they will be so much better. I am flying to Korea on Wednesday for work. This will be the first time in many years where I could contemplate leaving my home without having to sanitize email, phone, and desk objects for my protection. I don't plan to die, but if I did, I could go being happy that I am leaving my life as an honest person, with no serets. That means more to me than I ever realized. It is my biz trip, but my H is coming with me. It is a new chapter. I will try to check in while I'm away. Meanwhile, thank you all for helping me save my life. --Bird

A year that seemed so long to you, seems like you just arrived to me.

I am happy you made it.  Welcome to Vetville.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

Congratulations Birdsong. Welcome to vetville. I hope you have an amazing time with your H even though it is a biz trip. :)

The core of who you are is not always obvious to everyone. But to believe what others may believe of you can cause you to deny yourself, the wonders, of who you really are.
