The past few days have been extremely difficult.
I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself.
I’m going to take some time away to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself.
Swimming is a major part of my life, but right now I need to focus my attention on me as an individual,
and do the necessary work to learn from this experience and make better decisions in the future.
