Every once in a while my head gets on overload and needs a break/rest. Emotional pain + physical pain for extended periods and I go into hiding. I do apologize for not getting on here and letting everyone know that I was OK but when I'm hurting I hide. It's not an excuse, just the reason why I've been absent.

We're headed to the beach Wednesday for a few days of rest and I know that always brings me back from the 'pit' I'm in. When we get back I know I'll get back into the swing of things.

Thanks all for being such a wonderful and caring family!

We miss you, but understand the need to take a break. I hope your batteries get recharged this week and you have a restful, relaxing, pain-free (or at least low-pain) week. :)

I have been wondering where you've been. Glad it's nothing serious, and breaks are important, too! Say hi to the ocean for me.

I think that we all have times like this. It sounds as if you just need to take time to take care of yourself right now. Have fun at the beach! It sounds like the perfect medicine to me!
