As for my OP, I knew I probably sounded like I was originally whining, and I know a lot of people often feel the same way. I knew I would find answers and move forward. I wasn’t about to give up, contrary to how it sounded. But I won’t lie, I was very depressed.
I am over it now and looking forward to moving to the next stage. It’s great to have the words of encouragement I received as well as helpful suggestions.
This thread will be most important after I have reached a level of success as then, it will show others the that they have hope, even if they have to change plans and keep plugging at it.
