    I am an active member of the Church with SSA. People need to have more compassion and understanding towards those of us who struggle.

    My heart breaks for you that you had to go through that David. You should never have had to feel like that. You are so brave and strong to talk about this so openly. You will help many others by your clear, strong, and loving voice. I think you are amazing!!
