Anxiously awaiting House season 8

I don’t know about the rest of you but I seriously cannot wait for House season 8. Dr. Gregory House left us on a bit (read: major) of a cliffhanger in season 7 and he left us wondering if he has finally lost it. His ability to alienate the only people  who care about him is scary to watch and as someone who already suffers from the occasional anxiety attack this does not help me, not at all. And with his Vicodin addiction quite possibly spiralling out of control AGAIN, I just wish that he gives up on those little pills that he treats like candy. It is weird that one can miss a fictional character who is so cynical and absurd.
