Wow, this is a blast from the past! Good to see some folks I haven't seen in a long time.
I think Coral and Fine really answered the question for those of us who haven't fully healed and no longer need PB (not that THEY haven't, just the reasons they gave for absence).
I've had a horrid couple of years, and the trend continues. I'm off all meds--no insurance, no money.
In the last 12 months or so ALL of my fur-babies died. Lamar, my beautiful brain-damaged collie, had to be put down. Finn McCoole, the cat I found under my house when he was about 2 weeks old, died suddenly of unknown causes. Shadow, my glorious black Lab with incredible strength and compassion, passed from old age. And, Goblet, the psycho dog from hell (thank goodness he was small!) passed away in the night shortly after Shadow.
So, in addition to the depression I've been trying to deal with all of that...and it's really all just too hard.
I think my absence is just due to being too overwhelmed to be conversational, and I'm much older now (55) with less energy in general, and way less articulate and much more monosyllabic.
I'm very sorry to hear that folks lost loved ones, you all have my sympathies and prayers.
