    I am submitting my picture wearing my new Got Issues Shirt. As promised I wore it on Friday to the CAFAP Conference in CT, but didn’t take the picture there as many people knew what it was about. I did get some raised eyebrows from our Program Director though for wearing it to the conference with all those DCF folks there. My husband took the picture Friday night at our favorite crazy week unwinding spot, Loco Perro in East Hampton, CT because they have the BEST Margarita’s. They also know I have issues as that was where we went right after my ER visit when I broke my arm. It was the one place I knew I could go in a hospital johnny, my Elmo slippers and a leopard print snuggie! They even cut up my dinner for me as I only had one arm. Okay, my issues are really showing now, can’t figure out how to paste/post the picture. HELP!
