Hi Marye,

I was reading your sharings with much compassion. Honestly, not much I could help... But when it touched the chocolate theme..! If you would like may I suggest to make your own raw chocolate - many would not believe how easy and simple it can be :) I never buy the ready-made chocolate again. If this is something that may brighten your (and everyone's else) days here is the recipe:

100g cacao butter

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1/4 cup maple syrup (or other syrup, the level of sweetness can be amended as you like)

1 cup of GRATITUDE (optional :) )

Melt the cacao butter in a hot water "bath" (happy to explain if needed). Stir in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon the mixture in any forms / molds or dish you have (I do in a muffin tray or silicone ice cubes tray). Can be additionally toped with what ever your imagination allows. Put in a freezer to set for couple of hours, I leave overnight and then keep it there enjoying small piece at a time / day. 

That's it. Done! Dive into a joy and pleasure of the moment. I personally like to add 3 tbsp of HAPPINESS by dancing while waiting cacao butter to melt Heart

Here is my outcome but I believe you could make yours with ease!
