Thanks astralmonkey for the kind words. I have to admit its taken me a while to grasp this self acceptance piece and sense of calmness of where I am but quite honestly I think a scary dr visit had to have shocked me into that reality. Whatever the reason, I am grateful for the new path it has sent me on.

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
I will rise from this defeat and claw my way back.
