Quite a journey brother Joe! Sounds like it was a hard fought one but necessary overall and a God Send for you! I think you discovered more about your own identity than you could have otherwise and so a blessing in disguise; especially if you look at it that way and want it to be!

Congratulations on all the effort you have made and are making to go the right way and fulfill the purpose that God created you for! Stay strong and use all the wisdom you’ve earned to do all the good you are capable of!
God bless you and yours.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in Texas!
