    Hope you will seek this out, from the most formal to the most casual ways to have that. From a little old lady on your block or in your apartment building, or a mentor or set of mentors through a church.

    And you don't have to be highly religious to take help from a church, often they have great programs that really follow through. If it's not a highly controlling fundamentalist church, there are a lot of positive social aspects to it. A built-in community of new friends, mentors, and even parents.

    This health care system is a moral atrocity. Dr. Ralphdog
