I need a break

This week has been one of the most stressful weeks of the year so far, and it has been an extremely stressful year.

It culminated Friday night with me being taken to the hospital from work for lightheadedness and discomfort in my neck and shoulders that was coming and going much of the day. Around dinner time I felt so strange that I knew something was wrong. The nurses I work with took my blood pressure and it was really high (and I normally run low). They called the doctor over and they all made me go to the hospital to get checked out.

The ER ran all their tests and didn't find anything wrong so the doctor told me that it was more than likely my body reacting to stress. He also told me it would be a good idea to try and stay away from some of the people who bring the most stress to me...yeah, that'd be nice.

My body was shutting down
It was telling me to take a break
I don't know what to do now
I wish I could just take a few weeks and leave.
