I am going to take a blogging break for about a week. Despite three treatments/weekly and massage therapy, my back is not healing, but rather is still in considerable pain. The pain, plus the lack of physical activity, plus the interference with everyday life is adding up to some pretty significant depression at this point. I am just not myself right now, and instead I have become this really angry, sad and frustrated person who cries all the time and can't really think beyond managing the pain and trying to get through basic daily activities, much less trying to write a blog.
Everyone has been super supportive with this over the last five weeks (though it feels like five months). I know I will pull myself back together once things start to right themselves, but until then, I am just really struggling emotionally and just need to take a step back from everything and everyone.
But please don't forget I am out here, and I will really try to get back to this in about a week.
