Success... like truth... is in the eye of the beholder.
I found good advice on this site... the opportunity to not feel so 'untouchable'. And the simple understanding that once the hard part is over with, there's still the issue of dating to deal with. That one alone is pretty tough to deal with... at least for me.
However, I have, in my opinion, struck a certain sense of self worth. And an understanding of where I am. I was using the excuse that my virus was the cause of so many hours of depression and self pity... Now I realize that it was just me. And my battles lie on a different front. A front best handled solo.
Thanks to all on PS for their support though... I appreciate it, and I needed it.
