Thank you to GFMPH gathering this past week for teaching this to Paul and letting him live a little. It's been great to see him so happy and changed......
Thank you Todd for giving us hope and sharing your story.
It was pretty cool watching Paul throughout the weekend at the GFMPH gathering. At first he seemed rather reserved, even wary, and pretty down. By the end of the weekend, his fun sense of humor was clear, and he seemed to be more relaxed and enjoying himself.
That's part of the magic of that gathering, I think. We get to be around others like us, who aren't down in the doldrums from it. It's very refreshing and uplifting.
Many thanks to those who started this event, and those who keep running it at no small personal effort!
