This is a topic that some people might find sensitive, so I want to once again assure you that everything you tell me is confidential and no one will ever be able to find out which answers you gave to any of the questions. If you agree to get started on this topic, you can still change you mind at any time or you may decide not to answer any specific questions. Can we go ahead and get started on these questions?
