Word of the day: Balance.
Step back. Pause. Breathe. Then say out loud "I will strive for balance and perspective today".
Feel free to do the same tomorrow, and the next day, and the...
Wishing you comfort.
Anyhow, I am where you are....just so exhausted from it all and withdrawing.
And I have questions I want answers to as well, but I'm just too emotionally whooped to ask them.

I feel like I'm caught between the proverbial rock and hard place, so I've decided just to do nothing today. As much as I want to get past all the anxiety and worries, I have to give this (and us) some time. I'm worried about losing momentum, but trying to rush the process isn't helping either of us.
Join me in taking a day or two to just "be" and see how that feels?

There's wine and a baseball game on my to-do list tonight, I hope you can kick back and enjoy some peace as well.
