    Some of us can return to our previous interests and hobbies, while others are not as fortunate. For the unfortunate ones, they have the right to be angry, and yes, feel sorry for themselves. But only for a short time. Part of our recovery and managing our pain is rejoining life and that's what we intend to do.

    Sure, we may have said "All I know is what I used to do, nothing else." We hear you and we also hear an excuse not to move on. We realize that developing new interests is a risk and holds its own fears. But think of the alternative, which is to slip into self-pity and once again watch life pass us by. Have we discovered we can develop other interests?
