I had canceled my subscription when I got a message from Patricia. I figured that I had almost a full month left so it couldn't hurt to talk with her. She was so validating and offered really helpful easy solutions that I renewed my subscription. Just knowing that I can message her anytime I am struggling and that her response will have something simple that I can do that actually helps is very comforting.
