Truth be told, I was in a severe depression the first two months.  So I was, I’m putting on a front—I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of folks do that too, where you just fake it—and then I went through the whole phase of “fake it till you make it.”  But during that next, that two months of depression, I just came across this point of clarity that I could either go down this continual spiral of destroying my own soul, feeling sorry about myself, and just bringing everybody else down with me.  Or, just come to that “Jesus moment,” if you will,  and just make the choice of either taking what I got, and going from that point on, and just going forward , and taking whatever lumps the along the way.  I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not been the easiest journey, but for two-and-a-half years I don’t think I’m doing too bad.
