Amanda’s Letter

My eulogy……

I am in deep deep sorrow and mourning today for the passing of sister Alcohol. We have been dear dear friends ( or so I thought) for the last 14 years.  She has been with me through the most difficult moments of my life, the most happiest, and during some years she was my only friend since I had cut everyone else off and only wanted to spend time with her.

I have told her my deepest, darkest secrets because I thought that she could help me feel better and would never try to hurt me.  But slowly, slowly I came to see – but did not want to admit – that she was an abusive, possessive and humiliating friend.

Actually, she was not my friend … I hate her and in all honesty I should be glad that she is dead … but I am sad, I am crying … I am praying for the day that I will no longer miss her!!
