I’ve been away so long, how can I feel normal standing next to all these girls who have been working so hard for all of these months I was just sitting, holed up in my house? But can you really blame me? I know that they all do by the looks they are giving me. There isn’t any room in this for sympathy. I just hope that all of the outsiders who are in the audience, no relatives or friends, but people who know only my story cheer for me. I hope they came to support me coming back. Because all of my original supporters are gone now. Without the outstretched arms of strangers I have no one on my side.
