Bulloney, Daisy. Not posting would be against the doctor's orders, now, wouldn't it?
Besides, we're all in the same boat, so you'd better plan on helping us all bail it out, right? Sometimes that means just being here. I know you can do that.

That's because it's a great closet. ;-)
And you know what? I realize this is a literal response, rather than a "real" one, but I used to sit in my closet all the time. I took in a light, and an armchair, and my radio, and that's where I'd sit and read. The heater duct was there, and as long as the pilot light was on, it was warm in there. I felt so snug and safe. I really don't think there's anything wrong with sitting in the closet, if it's a cozy place for you.
I'm also a very firm believer -- you'll laugh at this -- in giving yourself time off, giving yourself permission to stop struggling quite so hard against the current. Just let the current have you for a while, while you get collect your strength again. Float.
> I'm sorry guys. I should take a break from posting. It all comes out negative and horrible. And there isn't anyone can do anyway.
Yeah, well, you know what? We can do the only thing anyone can ever do for another person, when you come right down to it: we can care about you. And we do that. It's a lot better, though, if you're here to be cared about...
My class is overwhelming, but in a good way (now that I've stopped the Buspar...), but if you want to go shoe shopping, you know where to find me, right?
