Laptop fail

My %#^*% laptop died on me while I was in the middle of the mandatory post-trip post. Died dead. Doesn’t want to restart or anything. Gaaaaaaah

Anyway…

I went. I got my heart broken again at all the terrible statistics for Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).

Had a chance to tour Bivona, the Child Advocacy Center (note the odd non-Canadian spelling).

Got my heart broken even more when I saw the medical examination room and the interview room (complete with a one way mirror a la Law & Order). And it was all I could do to get out of there before I lost it

Broken heart aside, it was a good trip and I’m now a certified Darkness To Light Facilitator for the Stewards Of Children program.

Other than that, I ate way too much today and now my aching tummy won’t let me sleep.

So I’m here, cuddling with my purring cat and hoping to make the world a safe place for children, one workshop at a time.

Garbage plate. Apparently a Rochester delicacy

    So happy to hear that you got to the training and you’re certified. I don’t know how you did it, frankly, I was cringing just at the mention of the statistics and the details of that centre.

    Re: your stomach… You didn’t eat THAT, did you?

      Yeah. It was hard. I knew it was hard. The things I SAW as a doctor working at a third level university hospital were one of the main reasons I decided never to practice. But it precisely because of what I SAW, that I’m so committed to prevention.

      And yes, I did eat THAT :P

        I have the utmost respect for people who do what you do (whether focused on prevention, law enforcement, therapy, etc.). I simply don’t have the emotional fortitude for it, which makes me respect you even more.

        As for your poor stomach…I can’t believe you ate that. Looks like a stomach ache waiting to happen.

    I”m so proud of you for getting certified! That’s so great. :)

    Um, yeah, that food looks like it can do some damage. No wonder your tummy was hurting!

Got something to say?
