    Sorry to hear you are feel that way @Shan216. I'm sure many other people in the forums can relate. It's very understandable that you're feeling that way. Sounds like your relationship and your family are a very strong motivation for you.
    There's plenty of helpful information in the forums but also in the blog. You might want to navigate the Success Stories for some motivation too. :);
