“I don’t feel better. I am not myself. It has been only 4 weeks and the suffering just really started,” she wrote. “But I am doing the best I can each day. I am in grief therapy a few days a week. I am doing all I can to get better as some people call it- it’s not because they mean harm – it’s because they have no knowledge. That’s all So good advice for those. It’s best to just say – I am thinking about you and praying for you. That’s the easiest way.”
