CONGRATS TO BT65!!!!!
« on: April 24, 2009, 06:56:49 AM »
On behalf of all the ladies in the PW forum, I'd like to congratulate BT65 on her upcoming COLLEGE Graduation -  Cum Laude!!! Yesterday was her official last day - cap and gown soon to follow.  She has served as an inspiration to me and many others here.  Overcoming insurmountable hurdles, she is a living testament of strength and determination.

I'm proud of you.  I'm happy for you.

YAY BETTY!

I'm really proud of you too. I bet you never thought you'd see this day ten years ago.

I hope you treat yourself to something nice, in honour of your graduation. Wish we could all be there on the day to cheer you on!

Hugs,

Bollocks, woman! Don't be so damn modest. It's a fantastic accomplishment achieved despite the odds. You said, "damn-it, I CAN!" when so many would have said, "gosh, I couldn't possibly..."

You're one in a million and don't you forget it! ;)  ;D

PS - and not only did you DO it, you did it in style! I mean, cum on, you cum laude woman! :)

PPS - for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term cum laude:   Cum laude is an Latin term used to indicate a high level of academic distinction at the time of graduation. Along with other academic honors, it is used all over the world and no standard system governs how it is used; schools decide how to award honors on an individual basis. Typically, to graduate cum laude, a student must maintain excellent grades, complete a supplemental honors thesis, and participate in honors courses. In some nations, students who wish to achieve a cum laude designation on their diplomas must also complete a series of special exams.

When a student graduates cum laude, this is written on his or her diploma. Generally, students also indicate their cum laude status in applications to other schools and on an employment resume, since it suggests a high level of achievement.

Oh man, you ain't kidding! Our newer members probably don't realise that Betty's been positive for, what is it now, hun, getting close to 20 years? She also has various health problems that would ground most people - like having dodgy, very painful knees. (not hiv related) She's been at death's door a time or two. (hiv related) She's also a recovering addict. She hasn't wallowed in self-pity, she got out there and did something remarkable and I'm sure she'll continue being remarkable. She's an inspiration for sure.

(Don't hit me Betty! I'll shut up about this eventually, but I think it's important for people to understand just what a great achievement you've... er... achieved. ;D You deserve all this praise and then some.) ;)

Yeah, it's been 20 years.  I'm not going to talk about the other health problems, though.  That would be saying "look at me!" and, well, it's just not about that.  And I know we're all at various levels of health.  But, we should never let being diagnosed with HIV act as a reason for our lives to stop.  If we do, then there's obviously something else going on besides just the diagnosis, that needs to be figured out.    About being a recovering addict........I realize recovery doesn't have the best odds.  The majority of people who get introduced to recovery don't stick around (which, of course, is sad, but reality).  It took me a few times (3) to stick with it, but it's worth it.  All the horrible withdrawals, confusion, guilt, pain etc. that is getting worked through is worth it. 

You all here are very special to me.  In the positive women's section, we all are a very close-knit group, and I'm so glad.  There's some extremely strong women on these boards (yeah, you too Ann), and I'm so glad I found them.  And you others as well (Hal, David, Alan, you others know who you are).  I didn't expect this thread, nor all the replies.  I just want to thank you all, it means the world. :-*

That would be saying "look at me!" and, well, it's just not about that.  And I know we're all at various levels of health. 

Oh dear, it's always about that in my book.

Those grainy pictures are obviously faked.  They're almost like some sort of Stalinist revisionism.

Hey now!  Those were taken with my fairly new Nikon something or other camera.  One of my friends took them.  Those are the only ones I can maneuver small enough to post.

Thanks, all.

Next, if you only knew what was underneath, you probably wouldn't have said that. ;)

Yaka, I truthfully have never been on TMZ. :-\

Hey Betty, if you send them to me, I have this really cool re-sizing software on my computer. I can shrink them and send them back to you. If you don't have my email addy, send me a PM.
