the retreat - Oct. '07
Journal 10-17-07: Missing several days of work again this year. Less due directly to depression or anxiety and more due to symptoms of them - strained back, cold, stomach problems. Twice have missed a 2nd day due to not having the energy, etc. to face classroom duties plus the kids and staff and their needs.
