Tamra - Well first off...

CONGRATULATIONS TO A JOB WELL DONE ON MTV TRUE LIFE!!!  <applause>

 I can't even imagine how difficult and freeing it must have been to share your story.  I am actually a physical therapist in CT who started treating Women's Health this past January.  I recently graduated in 2008 from PT school (so let me know if you need pointers!).  Again, great job on the documentary and best of luck with your future!
