YES! And I've been wondering if this happens more often to women than to men? In any event, I have found that self-care is the only way to get through it. I love your advice about what you decide to give energy to, as well. I'm focusing my attention on what I want to make happen. I agree with Donna John - we've got this. Thank you, Glenda Bundy !
