Hi Selena. Welcome to 3FC.

You are right that about getting help and support here. These Chickie's are the greatest. But I want you to remember one thing. You can do this, and no one here can make it happen except you. The most important thing that you can do to make it happen "this time" is to never, Never, NEVER give up. Don't give up.

Never give up.
