  6. Scott White

    This is an incredibly powerful story.

    Although I did not suffer nearly the level of trauma and addiction that you did, I see so many parts of your story that reflect mine.
    Especially the need to earn by excelling at everything, and feeling that I was not good enough.

    Thank you for your courage in sharing this story, and for your perseverance in challenging times.
