    Hi Virginia, I am not sure if they reached out to you, but I stumbled on your story and it is very touching, my prayers are with you, and you are stronger and worth every happiness in the world and trust me God is watching. When people hate themselves they inflict hate on other people and try to fill their void and insecurities through putting other people down. If there wasn't a light, a calling and a divine purpose for you on this earth trust me the devil wouldn't appear through people to deter your journey and your path.
