a bit off-kilter.

Maybe it's frustrations with research, maybe it's missing people from home, maybe it's stress and changes, maybe it's all of the above, but I just want to be in some no-man's land for a week. A vanilla place where I can just sit and sleep without having to care so much about everything -- work, my family, friends, all of that (maybe a vanilla place, in, dare I say, the Bahamas? Or Iceland?). And no, two weeks of self-isolation for H1N1 doesn't accomplish this...I was hoping it would, but alas...

A friend mentioned to me some time ago, "It's wonderful that you care so much about others. Think of the alternative." I realize I have many things to be thankful for, and that's what I try to keep pushing into my head. My heart and soul need a break, and unfortunately, that's not covered by worker's comp or insurance. The best I can do right now is keep breathing and keep going.

I can't offer more than hugs, and the assurance that the fact that you care so much is exactly one of the reasons i love you so dearly - and probably why we are friends. You are good people Bridget. xo be well.
