Carrie Funny, I am facebook friends with her and sent my patient not addict picture for her cause. I just saw today that her husband left her and she is going to need a lot of support while she goes through this. Divorce is hard in the best of situations but she has RSD and is a young mother with no family to help her. 3 years ago
