That does indeed suck, but as Miah said, we's all here together. I know it's not the same, but can work in a pinch. And even though physically alone, thoughts of family and loved ones are still there, as are their voices should you choose to listen. The only time someone is completely alone is when they only heed the voices their head, and it's their own.
Merry Christmas, Tao, and remember, just like zesty jalapeno dip, this too shall pass.
