I havn’t disappeared

Well...I guess I kinda have. My hormones have been throwing me completely off kilter to the point where I have taken some calming tablets on the really bad days. Blogging feels a bit too emotionally draining for me to attempt at the moment. Will get back to it as soon as my body calms down.
