Dear Paul,

Welcome to MS. You've taken some important steps in recovery already. There will be difficult times ahead, but don't turn back. Theres a life ahead of you as a whole healthy man that you deserve to have. Whatever happened, it wasn't your fault. Keep writing.

Well, I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down.
Tom Petty
