Thumbs down Leave of absence. - January 7th 2013, 08:55 PM

Hey lovelies.
Some of you might of noticed I have been on leave for about a week now. I have kind of made up my mind that I do not just need to go on leave from my staff duties but to take a break away from the whole site itself. Under some recent events in my life things have gotten to more then I can handle. Some people here are making it a little hard for me to get better and feel safe. I am going to take a break from the site for a bit while I am on leave to settle things in my life. Gives me a little chance to study for my only exam, get ready for surgery, my art show, my final video project, gives me alittle more time to talk to my girlfriend who just wants to help me feel better. I feel like I have let her down a lot lately because no matter what I do I am always putting myself down and it upsets her. If I do not go now then I am afraid I never will take this break for myself and I will end up hurting myself more then I have been.
I think its just best for me right now to back away from things You might see me online a little to check messages, but that will be it. If I can not help myself, I can not help others.
My inbox is always open if you would like to talk, check up on me. I always love getting little messages from people.

I love you all. Please take care of yourself.

Take as much time as you need to get things back on track Kayla. Sometimes other things in life have to take priority and thats very okay.

I hope to see you back whenever you feel ready again

Take care.

We all need a break from things from time to time. They're important! Come back when you're sure you are ready. I can't wait to see you 'round here again!
