Even if you work like crazy to bring them back, it might not work. At this point, you're screwed. This was studied further in a project by Tiffany White at the University of Illinois. She researched how people respond to advice in highly emotional states. Instead of doctors and patients, she looked at financial decisions between clients and advisors.
