Hello World. I'm back. Again.

I don't know if anyone is still out there, but something is drawing me back here to talk. Sure, the blog has become a part of my therapy and my way to "process" all the stuff life brings. But it has also brought me some good friends and a way to keep in touch with old ones as our modern day life makes it all just a little bit harder to do. Simply, I miss you guys.

As Jules mentioned yesterday, I haven't been blogging or really typing socially for that matter as I have developed RSI's in both arms. I am diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on the right side and Tendinitis all over both arms. I work hard and long (too long) and I no longer have time to IM, blog (read or write) or pick up the phone. Typing this right now gives me a burning pain that travels from my right writs, up my arm and down my back. It's AWESOME!

But alas I miss my community. I miss taking time out everyday to at least read about my "bloggy friend's" worlds. I miss writing about the positive things in my life and instead only seem to be drawn here to bitch about the challenges.

Facebook has been an interesting outlet and I've been using it off and on, but the blogosphere gets more out of me and I get more out of it. I also joined Twitter recently (30 minutes ago) but I don't get it but we'll see how that one goes.

So today I am older, and I am taking things back which have gotten away from me. My health. My family. My friends. My Internet. (so profound!)

Glad to have you back! Sorry to read about all those issues with your arms and back, they sure do get in the way of the old blogging addiction, don't they? I'm on twitter and FB, but honestly, there aren't enough hours in the day just to follow my blog pals, and now that I'm contemplating fulltime work, I have NO IDEA how it will play out.

But I will still keep up with you, as long as you're still around here, Cherry. I am very, very happy to see you here. We've missed you too...

I knew you had some arm pain several months ago, but I had no idea it had become so severe. I'm so sorry to hear about that.

Your community in the blog world has missed you, too, and I'm glad you're back.

SO glad you're back. Maybe we'll get Autumn's mom blogging again, huh?
