Mods and my fellow GTers alike.
Just so everyone knows, I WAS indeed asked if I wanted it mainpaged. There was concern that because it was so personal, I wouldn't want it to, but honestly, all you gave me the courage to let it be. The people who have told me that it helped them far outweigh the trolls.
And ESPECIALLY THANK YOU to the mods. You all have been AMAZING. I have about three troll comments that have actually made it to me. I know for a fact there were more to begin with, and I just didn't have to see them or know they existed. I just get support and people telling me I've helped them, and that is a fantastic feeling.
I love you all, you all gave me the courage to write this piece in the first place, thank you so much.
