This year has been pretty hard losing so much. My ex son in law hit my daughter and. tried to break her ankle and gave her head injuries. She is safe but he is stalking her. Then three weeks ago my son died of AIDS. I didn't think anything could hurt so much. Until I was told that the bird I as working with was given to another. I worked so VERY hard, I drove 300 miles a weekend and it was decided that since I planned to move eventually, they found someone else. Nobody told ME! There was a meeting I wasn't even asked to participate in, about ME! And I found out by my mentor shouting at me and saying she didn't have time for me. The ONE THING that put everything together for me, my beloved birds, and it went up in smoke. I can still volunteer, but the fire and trust are gone. I would do anything for these gorgeous birds, and I want to learn. I have a new place to go, but I feel so betrayed. And they found a lump by my thyroid but won't do a biopsy because I might bleed. So I don't know what it it. Hoping to found out in Atlanta. The dress is just about to kill me. We're it not for my wild birds, I guess I might quit. But they need me too. I hope our move is a good one. If anyone is from Atlanta, I'm the bird lady!
