My best friend died last month from chronic alcoholism, liver damage at only 36 years old. We drank together until her health mandated she stop, I had no idea she so was sick until it was too late. I didn't realize that she was drinking while I worked, napping during the day until we got home from work. With all that said I miss her so much, she lived here for 12 years and we shared so much. Her love for children, dancing, fun.....I realize she never really wanted to grow old and she didn't embrace grownup things like full time work, gaining credit, seeing the Doctor on a regular basis. I miss her so much.
