Dr. Horrible, thank you for saying what you did. I too am an alcoholic. I relate to your story. I apologize for my post if it was worded poorly. I wrote that really without thinking about how it might be interpreted. I definitely didn't intend to make anyone feel guilty or to "threaten" anyone with sad parents. Sorry, I'll try to work on that.
Nonono! That's not what I intended at all. Your post was very powerful and emotional and I think it was very right for you to share your story and try to make a point. You didn't do anything wrong!
So don't apologise. I'm impressed that you dared to share the story of your friend, even before I knew you yourself had addiction troubles. I know how hard it is. You didn't make me feel guilty or threaten me in any way. I tried very hard to make that point in my own post but I know it's easy to interpret things your own way when you're sensitive (sensitivity is a good thing in my book, by the way). I think people are talking about me in a bad way all the time, thinking they hate me or that I said something wrong.
You said nothing wrong!! I promise you!
If anything, I just wanted to share my story so that maybe YOU would feel less guilty about the death of your friend. I'm so sorry if it came off as me saying you're doing something wrong. You're doing great things. You're sharing a story of pain. That's hard and you did it anyway. I applaud you for that. I don't want you to feel bad. I want you to feel better. I so, so, want you to feel better. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.
