thank you so much for the imput. My husband called before he came home tonight to test the waters. I told him it was safe to come home. :-) 2 days into the period and i'm back to recovering gail. We have young children and time to myself is rare. I need to make a point of doing that especially during the cycle. I learn so much on this page and feel so grateful for the knowledge and help.
