I'm gonna take just a moment to pitch my cousin Betsy. We had been out of touch for years and recently got in touch on FaceBook. Despite how different our lives are, there are also similarities. Guess that can happen when you're connected by blood--genetically, of course, not Fulci- or Tarantino-style. She's a very talented artist and a sweet gal. I recommend checking out her site: http://www.grimmsituation.com/betsy/home.html
Also, I have been doing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) for about half a year now. In April I lost my fiance, to suicide. It is a very difficult thing to accept and one moment from the next you don't quite know what to do or how you feel. EMDR is a fascinating therapy that deals with both hemispheres of the brain, and is especially good for trauma but can be helpful in many areas. It is more and more becoming recognized as a powerful form of therapy. If you have experienced serious trauma, or are even in therapy for watching too many Woody Allen movies, I suggest EMDR, if you get a chance. Most people I know who do or have done it have been amazed.
