A big thank you to those ahead of me and those behind me in this journey! I learned from you all! I am celebrating 2000 days of freedom today, and I was successful after many failed attempts mainly because of the education and support that I received from this site and the members of this site.
To those of you just beginning this journey, stick around and do whatever is necessary to get through it. There were days that I didn't think that I could make it, and I thought that it would not get better. But it does get better, it just takes time. Keeping a good attitude will take you far! Though it is not always easy, it is the very best thing that you can do for yourself!
