    They say there are 5 stages of grief and they are:
    • Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.”

    • Anger:Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”

    • Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.”

    • Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”

    • Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.”
    I am caught somewhere between bargaining and depression and the loss hasn't even occurred yet.

    Mad Men is in it's final season and I am not well at all about this. How can they do this? I am STILL in depression over the loss of Walter White and now this? Seriously, I have relationships with these people and we just line em up for a firing squad? Where is the humanity here? Where is the outcry? This story ain't over. It' FAR from over. Breaking Bad had it's run and there was nowhere else to go but Mad Men....over?? This is bull shit and there is no pill for bull shit. How does one even grieve from a loss like that? I feel there is no right answer.

    I just saw an email from Little League Baseball where Bryan Cranston discusses his time in LL. I can't even open the email.

    I haven't watched Mad Men but heard they drink a lot, even throughout the day while working. My answer to get over your grief is to drink a lot, starting in the morning. You say there is no pill for bullshit. There are pills for other things and can be mixed with your all day drinking. This may not be the best advice but I feel it will help in getting over your depression about the show.

    A little off the subject but piggy backing on your "drink alot, even throughout the day while working" comment. I remember growing up in the late 80's/early 90's that it wouldn't be an issue if your dad dragged a cooler full of beer to your baseball game. As a little league coach now, I couldn't imagine how everyone would react.

    Big Sonic cups my man. I can fit those big 25oz beers in there, they stay cold and you get the false sense of security that no one knows what you are up to even though everyone does. How in the hell can a Sonic drink last through 7 innings of baseball on a hot ass day?
