Wow, that IS sad, Missy. I know what it's like to have a talent that's snuffed short for whatever reason. Mine was musical instruments... My depression started as a teen after a traumatic event in my life, and I quit playing. It's a painful subject.
But I strongly believe there's a purpose for everything in our lives -- both the good and the bad. I'll bet you're a wonderful artist! ... That said, I hope you're singing again soon.
Whatever form your art takes, I'm sure you create a lot of joy for others, MissyH. You certainly do here!
