    Hey Jenn,
    I think if you’ve been going and going for a while, you probably just need some rest. But stay hydrated (water is your friend) and take some vitamins. Do I sound like a nurse? I’ve been to Venice Beach, it’s a great place to people watch, one of my fav things to do. I, for one , am glad you are sober and not a statistic. It’s amazing to me how many people overdose and die from this disease. It is truly an epidemic. I’m in the fight with you girl, and also grinning at your success.

    I’m glad you had a great time at the beach with your family. You probably picked up a bug, because you wore yourself down. I’m sorry you’re sick, and sorry for your loss.

    I know what you mean about too many people in one place. Makes me want to scream sometimes too. Glad you had some fun family time. So sorry to hear you’re not feeling good. Once you “Get the Balance Right” all things will come back together.

    Balance is a dirty word for me. lol I still struggle daily with it, doesn’t come naturally.
    Sending love & laughter to you Chica! 😉 xoxoxo
