After I had a little meltdown on the BB that I frequent way too often about the wait and people not getting how hard it is, something finally clicked and I realized that there are plenty of people that do "get it" and that have went through or are going through the exact same thing. That's something I probably should have realized a while ago, since I've been on that board too much over the past year. I guess I am the one who never truly understood the pain of those who were waiting for their travel call.
I am so grateful that I've met some amazing women throughout this journey, albeit many of them I may never meet in person. I am also thankful that I have found a place for support when most of those I know in real life think I'm a total looney.
