You truely put me to the test. You have held be back more than I ever thought possible. You made me hate the things I once loved. I always loved school, you made me hate it. I used to love going out and hanging with my friends, you made me hate it. I used to love being happy and smiling, and you made that impossible. You crippled me. You made me lose myself. I no longer knew who I was. I thought you would last forver, I thought I would be lost forever. I now know that was not the case. My hopelessness ended when I realized that I would not drag you around like cynderblocks attached to my legs with chains. At this point in time, I would like to thank you. You put me through the toughest mental obstacle I have ever experienced, and thank you for that. What was once lost is now found. I found myself. Because of you, I am now a better, stronger person, who is fully aware of themselves. I would have never achieved this if it weren`t for you. So thank you. I am okay. I will make it. I will strive. I will survive. I am strong enough for anything now, because of you. Thank you.
