    And that's something you'll have to deal with. I'm not sure I could put so much out there.

    I know that I'm too thin-skinned. To be effective as a lawyer, you'll need to be able to separate yourself from your work. I could never be a trial lawyer--they'd eat me alive.

    All I can tell you is to take in the support you are receiving--you earned it.

    The challenge for you is going to be how motivated you are to go beyond the limitations you see in your life. You may think 26 is old, but let me tell you, it looks a lot better than 54. It would not be shocking for you to go to college and then law school--people have done harder things. I know that is not helpful if you see it as insurmountable right now.

    If you really want to go out on a limb, write a diary about your dreams and your fears about accomplishing them. Your profile is rising here. People are responding to you. Dare to speak your truth. There are people here with knowledge and experience that can help you with that process. I'm not saying it will be easy--but it could be the difference between "impossible" and merely "difficult".

    People are listening to you--take that very seriously. You've already defied the odds on multiple fronts in your lifetime--why stop now?
