Sometimes we have to talk about it a lot. Sometimes we can't really talk about it (yet). When our heart aches, we aren't always sure what we need or want. I think sometimes we try to protect ourselves by bottling things up.

Grief becomes a part of us. That is not something we necessarily want to hear, that this painful, aching and emotional experience won’t just disappear forever. I intentionally mulled over this bit of information (more recently after hearing Frank Ostaseski speak about...

In 2012, I started on an another adventure in my veterinary education. Along with my 70+ other (incredible) classmates, I started surgery labs. And I am proud to say that we helped all of those dogs find homes. One of those dogs ended up in my home.
