Winter update...I'm here, barely

Well, hey!  It has been a long and difficult month and a half - so much going on, so much to deal with, and I'm not sure how much I should write.  In so many cases, writing helps, but I am not alone in the world, and words are permanent - especially on the internet. 

Let's begin with - my mind has been giving me trouble again.  It started with a low-grade anxiety that just wouldn't fade away.  Tolerable, but uncomfortable.  About a week after that started, I began to cry.  A lot.  Since then I have discovered a trigger, discussed med options with my doctor, and seen my therapist.  Also, there has been a large issue with a family member, we have had various holiday celebrations, and I've been sick for a week.  I have had no voice for 4 days now.  Do you have any idea how much I tend to talk? 

All this is to say, I am having problems.  And I'm trying to deal with them, but I have not meant to ignore my sweet readers.  I am trying to take some control back, and one way of taking control is to write.  So I will be back within the next few days.  If I'm not, come looking...
