     I respect your successes. Right here today, in the here and now, humility and willingness are the answers.
     Humbly accept the much-needed help that is being offered to you.
     Be willing to work within these systems of professionals. They are learned, maybe not luxurious, but highly effective – if you can get in and stay in.
      The process will save your life, change your life for the much better.
