    I was just wondering that myself. The weather there is crazy right now.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Thank you :love3: !!

    I had a horrible day yesterday because I am facing another surgery Monday and all of a sudden yesterday it hit me and I had a complete meltdown. Crying, feelings of worthlessness, abandonment, "I am a failure" etc. every stupid, bad, feeling that really was just terror manifesting as hysterics.

    I posted somewhere else on nc.com - have to check back there and post that I am back from the depths! I hadn't faced the anxiety until yesterday and I suddenly wildly freaked out. Much, much better today. Lots of calls from supportive friends and family. For asking after me - super (((HUGS))) and sincere thank you!

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Let us know how it goes, cp. Will you be out for a while? We'll miss you, but of course, everything will be fine.

    Thanks, Ninj. I'll be out for a few days and and mute for a while. My funny brother said "the perfect woman - can't talk back." I'll have a drain in my neck for a while - call Roto Rooter.

    After a few weeks I should be good as new! I feel a little abashed for getting so hysterical online but I was, as the saying goes, besides myself. I would have called a shrink I see once in a while but he's out of town. Feeling just fine today. :blob7:

    Oh, don't think twice about having a meltdown here. As everyone has already said, we've all done it. You're entitled. (Not that it was much of a meltdown: go ahead and scream if you want to!)

    I'll be thinking of you and wishing you well. I think you're brave.
