Thank you for your replies!
Antiochian, I thought long and hard about whether to go with it or not. It was a struggle, but I think now it's best if I do so. I plan to make what I can out of it. I like what you said though, that the only truth that matters is mine. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for what lies ahead, so that's definitely something I am going to try to keep firm and remember.
Brian, I also heard about ORU-OUT, but it doesn't seem to be active anymore. Maybe it is, but is still kept a bit secretive? I'm not sure. I've been researching for affirming places near by.
Thank you, folks, it's greatly appreciated
