I told her she needed to try her hardest to move on and start living again. She promised she would and walked out. I reiceved an email a couple moments later that Peter Van Houton had sent her some emails that Agustus had sent to Peter about Hazel. They were touching emails. Hazel is going to be okay, I know she will.

Treatment: More social interaction, She seems to be due for more injections of phalanxifor, She needs to once againg start going back to Support group, Haning out with friends and family and trying to live again. She needs to seek happiness once more without Agustus.
