Something to be glad about

It's been over a year since I came back from Tufts. I am really really really glad that I don't have to memorize charts like this anymore.

I'm sad that I'm not a vet, but Tufts was clearly a bad fit for me. I think I've come a long way in a year, emotionally. This time last year, I was scared to leave my house, I dreaded seeing anyone for any reason because of the dreaded inevitable "how are you?" or "what's going on in your life?" or "so, you're a vet now?" questions. I'm glad that I've passed through that miserable place. I enjoy seeing friends again. Things may not be 'figured out' at all, and there are still enormous stresses associated with my present situation. But I'm glad that I'm not as bad off as I was last year.
