I think it’s been about seven months since my last post. There are so many times I wanted to write but so much was changing in my world that I didn’t know what to say, what I was allowed to say or if it would even be the same the next day.
Last month I retired from the Air Force. The entire process has been bittersweet. With my neck injury my time in the Air Force was done, I will never fly again, I mean I’ll get in planes, But I will never fly the planes. To be honest, the release process was hard, and hurtful. So hurtful. We talk about departing with dignity but I really felt like I was departing without dignity. I still do, and I didn’t want to talk about that. So I think here’s how this will go, I’m going to start blogging again. I’d like to share a lot more, I’d like to share my story and as much or as little as you’d like to know, I’m ready to start letting it out. So send me your questions tell me what you’re curious about, tell me your stories, if you’d like to share, it doesn’t have to be military, just go for IT! This can of worms is about to explode. ( your story is welcome in this group, if you have something you think you could change, change for the better, it’s yours to share, when you are ready to share. )
But don’t think I’m not joyful, I have lots of design things to show you, I have kittens, smiles, joy. I also have sadness, I have hurt, and body shaming. I’m ready to start changing that story. I think it’s time we all change that story.,
