Way Too Happy  Here I am to greet you!  YAY!!!  I am so happy you made it...I knew you would.  Iddy would be so proud and I wish she were here for this.  But know what?  I believe she IS here in spirit.

We've known each other for some time now...what over five years now?  We had a lot of fun way back when..and still do today.

I feel honored, my friend, to be able to present to you this Vet medal, signifying one year NC and affair free, for your courage and determination and continued participation on this Board to help and support others.

You rock!

Now...let us pray that this post along with the link to your medal make it :)

I heard this song on my way to work this morning. I can remember hearing it in the early days of ending my A and crying...even on my way to work, even with my makeup on. This morning, a year after ending my A, I heard it again. It brought a smile to my face.....what a difference a year can make. As has been said on this board before and will continue to be said, if I can do it anyone can do it!

Woke up late today, and I still feel the sting of the pain.
But I brushed my teeth anyway, got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face.
I got a little bit stronger.

Riding in the car to work, and I'm trying to ignore the hurt.
So I turned on the radio, Stupid song made me think of you,
I listened to it for minute, but then I changed it.
I'm getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same, 
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.

Doesn't happen over night, but you turn around and a months gone by, 
And you realize you haven't cried.
I'm not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer.
I'm busy getting stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same, 
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger.

Getting along without you baby,
I'm better off without you baby,
How does it feel with out me baby?
I'm getting stronger without you baby.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same, 
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay,
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger.

I'm just a little bit stronger.
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.

Congrats NoWay.  Wow....at this point, I can't imagine a year......

But, I'm willing to keep putting one foot in front of the other to get there and experience it!  It is so encouraging to hear about how people that are so far out are feeling.

Thank you for sharing and for being on this board.

We appreciate you!

Thank you Clarity!!!

A year ago today I ended my A and took my life back! Best decision I ever made.

I too wish Iddy were here to share in the celebrating. She, like you, never gave up on me. I will forever be grateful to both of you for never giving up on me and for the tough love that was handed out....although I may not have appreciated it at the time! 

From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU Clarity! And thank you to everyone at EAS, you have all helped me along my journey. I will wear my medal every day proudly!!

Champagne for everyone (I hope my attachment comes through)!!
