I have been so disappointed by how people try to "help" me get through this grief. I'm not a Christian so references to God don't help. One friend is in AA but doesn't understand that grief and addiction aren't even close to being the same. Others have just dropped out of my life. They tell others how much they think of me but I never hear from them.View Thread
