I felt strongly that I was doing the right things. I kew it would take time, but I stayed with it. It was hard when people said terrible things about me. It was hard when people said terrible things about me. It upset my children, and my family and friends. Some days as I walked along the street, I saw people cross to the other side when they noticed me. They did not want to stand in the street talking to me.
