good post, Gary!
you've made remarkable progress in a short time. it take some of us months to get to the place where we can make the statements you just did - all in one gulp!
i hope you are aware of the change and encouraged by this.
keep at it - for your sake - and for all those who are reading along...
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
