    My heart was bleeding when I was replying to his post trying to lift him up. My marriage was put on break on that day and i had a terrible relapse where I ended up using our life's savings. But I don't believe in giving up. We all need help. We all need support. We can listen to each other's stories and try to calm each other down. Support each other emotionally. All these things are only possible because we have a wonderful platform here, this website. I appreciate the effort you guys put into this. May we all heal. May we all get rid of this nasty disease. Love
