Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, an avid fan of Whitney Houston, shares in the despair of her fans over her death. She notes what an especial travesty it was, coming so close to the Grammy's, but hopes that Whitney's passing helps to wake others up to the need for connection.

Although it is still unclear what caused Whitney's death, her struggle with drugs had been made known off and on for years. "This is a horrendous jolt to the system," says Dr. Bonnie, "everyone's in mourning - for her, and for the contribution her music made to our culture."

Dr. Bonnie views music as a window to the soul and always encourages her patients to listen to their favorite tunes to help them through especially trying times. "Whitney's music was a favorite of mine to recommend," she states, "her anthems of love and loss were beautiful; something everyone could identify with."

Dr. Bonnie also believes her death comes as a wake-up call: "Whitney likely was plagued by what I call the Biochemical Craving for Connection. This is the need to pursue a high such as drugs, sex, or money, in order to feel alive." On some level, this is something most people experience and it's crucial not to self-medicate but to deal directly with cravings for connection.

As the nation mourns, Dr. Bonnie hopes that people will use Whitney's memory to inspire in them a desire for closeness with their loved ones - and that the brevity of her life will drive home the importance of dealing with our demons.
