If you are anywhere near the west coast of the States. Or, can get to Portland, Oregon cheaply.. this might be an inexpensive option. I've never been and I get the sense it's a bit on the hippy dippy side (but not intolerably so- I don't mean to offend... I love me some hippies, but just trying to describe the place accurately and it works), but I've heard good things.

There may be similar things throughout the country. In fact, Breitenbush might even know. Maybe give them a call if they aren't close.

Let us know what you decide. I think it's a great idea!


> To go away someplace to heal for a bit. Not inpatient, but something where I'd be fed, tended to, gently exercised (like at a spa, though the costs I looked at are prohibitive). She just about commanded me.
> I have no emotional nor spiritual reserves. She wants me to get away from home and husband, away from the little things that are building up to become huge, insurmountable things in my head right now. Everything looks like a lose/lose situation in my skewed view, because I'm backed into this corner, and I've also lost my balance. I can see things are skewed, and that only makes me feel more like a failure - because I know my worldview is out of whack. (Great word, WHACK. That's me - whack-job.)
> Visit to family is out, for their own reasons. I can't afford to check into some ritzy spa at hundreds of dollars a day, not after having two new front teeth installed over Christmas :-( My husband would have a cow. Day spa visits wouldn't really address the eating/nurturing/tucking me in at night (like I'm looking for a rent-a-Mommy). In my case, the real thing doesn't cut it.
> Ideas would be appreciated - what can I cobble together that won't tax my currently limited powers of organization nor cost me the earth?
