Before I started seeing ZoeAnn or Ron I had no confidence or self-esteem.  Depression was constant.  I wanted to hurt myself, I had no love for myself.  Anger ruled my life.  After coming here for many years my therapist helped me to turn my life around in a positive manner to love myself and have the confidence and self-esteem to “Git ‘er Done!”  I learned that I am a very special and loving person.  I am very proud to have come here and have had the love and understanding and support from ZoeAnn and Ron.  The saddest part about leaving this world some day will be leaving these wonderful people behind.  Thank you for all the confidence you have given me.
