I'd been doing swimmingly until this past weekend. Something very upsetting happened and, being surrounded by people who I am not close to, I could not just crawl into a corner and have a good cry! Sure enough, since I'm still so new to this, the inability to vent produced pretty severe back pain for a couple days--until I could finally get by myself, do my journaling, and have a nice sob-fest! Back pain reduced greatly after that. So, we aren't hermits. How does one deal with this situation?
