Hi! Glad to meet another San Diego local.
I hope you don't mind, I went back and read your journal, and found a link to the old one. I am so glad you made a break from your scary bf - I've dated 'that guy' and wow. It's terrifying, both the guy and the fact that (at least for me) we missed some signals somewhere along the way!
Your story of being a cancer survivor is a strong one too. Congratulations on all counts.
Welcome fellow San Diego peeps. I love your avatar. Raquel was the iconic Grokelle.
