I would like to thank each and every one of you for all your hard work and support. This has been a life changing experience for me, and I will always remember the hard times and, even more so, the good times. For the first time in as long as I can remember, the good actually outweighs the bad. I will never forget any of you, and you all will always hold a place in my heart. Again, thank you so much for helping me face my fears and giving me the tools and confidence to get my life back.
