    Today I woke up and went into automatic pilot.

    Everyday my entire life I would call or see my twin sister Vicky. I woke thinking I am calling Vicky only to be slammed with the gut wrenching reality. No I lost her last month. I can't call her today, tomorrow or ever again. I haven't stopped crying.
