Linda, Until a couple of days ago, I felt exactly the way you do: staying alive not for my sake but the sake of a couple of people in my life. I "question God" just about every night, asking Him why was I born in the first place. I feel so lonely, so isolated, yet my neighborhood is small, In my neighborhood just about everyone goes to church on Sunday yet practically no one says "hello" to me; when I get angry I am reminded of what Gandhi said as to why he did not become a Christian; his answer? "I probably would have become one had I known one".

I am lonely and isolated. I am the person who had her house burn down and lost everything 7 mos ago. I have a great deal of compassion for people who are now experiencing the same in another state. I moved to another state, I don't know any one but I have only been here 3 weeks. I need people and miss my friend. I go to the mall and just sit or walk around to have human contact. After the fire, my doctor prescribed generous doses of Valium to help me cope with my loses. I lost my emotional support dog in the fire. Guilt plagues me that I couldn't save her. I miss her terribly as she was my constant companion and best friend for 5 years. She kept me active with walks and trips to the stores and dog park. I recently got a puppy and will be starting training 1/8. One day at a time and I am not a patient person. God, last night I screamed at him asking him where he is . . . this world is in tatters. Seems everyone is looking for a savior.
