Sometimes being right just sucks


A few posts ago I wrote about my sponsee Jen. I haven't heard from her since before Christmas, when we discussed getting her into treatment. She said she would go into treatment after Christmas. She didn't want to dissapoint her kids by not being there for them on Christmas. I received a call today from her boyfriend. Sadly, Jen has passed away. This fucking disease killed her. Now her children will be permanently dissapointed. I will continue this later. I need to try to call her mother again. Please pray for her family.

I am so sorry to hear this. It is just so sad. I will keep her family in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh I'm so sorry. I really admire people who work with low bottom stubborn cases. I walk. Maybe I don't want to get hurt. Its just not my calling, I guess. I wouldn't be good at it, so I give back in other ways. I have nothing but admiration for you, and others I know that never give up on people.
