    Oh Den, I'm so happy for you! You are continuing to do so great.
    You must be so joyful at all you've improved this past month. The fact that your therapist AND boss sees the improvement is awesome, AND that you're more flexible and checking yourself, too. Keep up the super work!

    Den, I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of you.

    I'm sure it is very difficult but you are showing great control. Keep working at it. Isn't it wonderful to know you can control your reactions as you are? (((hugs)))
