28. I am praying for you, lady.
My Dad passed suddenly in November 2002 and my husband passed, also unexpectedly, exactly 7 weeks later on Christmas Eve. It will soon be 6 years and things are finally looking up. Don't let yourself get really down -- alcohol and drugs are only a temporary fix and delay the inevitable grief that you will have to face. Trust me, I tried to put my grief on hold through those and other "fixes" and this year I finally decided to face it and get on with my life. I finally feel "alive" and without drugs and alcohol. It takes time but you will become even stronger than you already are.

Prayers and thoughts to you.
