I think that is great Alera. It does warm my heart to know that you've found a fit for you that works well! I need to keep working on me here and do the same. I'm still most definitely *not* grateful to have this to contend with. Decisions that every day people could make in their best interest seem to be accentuated when dealing with this. For example, I now have to distance myself from someone until I *like me* (which could take forever or never) just for the sake of staying alive. Normal people don't have to sit and make these decisions as a matter of routine and I think it really sucks.
