How could it not? It doesn't just die.
I've gotten some great support and encouragement, and nothing will stop me from finishing my masters program. I'm meant to help others who are going through what I've gone through with the loss of my daughter. Whatever it takes, however long, I'm in it. The head of the Thanatology department wrote me back last night and said that I had 7 years to finish the program once I was enrolled, so the "break" I took didn't hurt me. I'm still in. It's a little late for me to start the Spring semester (especially because of finances), but I'm planning on taking a couple of classes over the summer terms.
That's all I've got right now. Enjoy the music....Peace - D
