Taking a break.

I will be taking a break from posting for a while. It's just too stressful right now. Apparently, because I chose to publicly stay out of a volatile conflict, I am ungrateful and uncaring.

I will be reading blogs and occasionally commenting. If you want to know how I'm doing you can email me at dorasblog at gmail.

Thanks.

Dora. I am so sorry. I do hope you come back soon. Until then, please take care of yourself and know that people love you. Hugs.

Kristin said...

I am so sorry honey. Please call me if you need an ear to bend.

Another Dreamer said...

I'll miss you. Take care hun, and take it easy. Email me if you need to talk about anything.

Brenda said...

Oh Dora, you are such a kind and giving person. I hate to see this dumped on you. Please take care of yourself and I hope that I will hear from you soon.

Anya said...

I have no idea what is going on but I am glad to hear that you are going to be taking care of yourself and this pregnancy. You have worked so hard for this and sometimes we have to look out for ourselves. I know you are endlessly grateful for the gift that was given to you to make this pregnancy possible. I hope time will help heal the wounds that have been open and wish you all the best!

Dora I'm so sorry - I missed a couple of days and it appears all h#ll has broken loose! I guess I don't understand exactly what is going on (and I don't suppose I need to know) but my heart goes out to you and ex-Angrycanrn; and I hope you know the WHOLE blogosphere isn't against you. I will miss you while you are gone and hope you come back to blog again soon. Please stay in touch and take care.

Nikki said...

Take care of yourself Dora. I don't know the whole story that happened, but from what I saw on your previous post, I don't blame you for taking a break.

Take care and come back soon.

((HUGS))

Heather said...

I am SO sorry that it has come to this, Dora. My heart goes out to both you and ex-angrycanrn. I hope you can come back soon.

WiseGuy said...

Dora Dora Dora! Right now you need all the emotional calm that you can garner.

Everybody has their chances....and we all make our choices.....we are not God. But we are not devils either.

I know that you are not ungrateful and uncaring....but there is a lot of hurt on the other end as well....

I want you to take it easy for a while...I shall be checking up on you from time to time....

Just Caz said...

I'm sorry that someone would treat you like that.
Your knocked up, you dont deserve the stress.
I hope you feel better soon and that everyone takes a chill pill!

The immaturity of adults amazes me every time I read some blogs. Just because you didn't publicly defend your friend does not mean you don't "have her back" or whatever people expect you to do.

And last time I checked, receiving a gift and being friends with someone does not mean you have to agree with their point of view 100% of the time.

Dora I admire your honesty about your silence on the matter in an attempt to not "fan the flames". Don't let anyone tell you what you should or should not have done on a public thread/blog/forum etc. You're a grown adult, and as such, do not need the acceptance of others nor their approval on how you handle your personal life.

Enjoy your break from the dramz that is the interwebs, enjoy your pregnancy and thrive in your friendships with IRL people.

much love,
A

You'r absolutel right, your first priority is that baby and you have to o whatever it takes to keep him or her healthy.

Chalk it up crazy internet shite and come back when things are calmer.

Cara said...

Email any time....or call - I'll send you my number.

xoxo - to you and to that sweet baby.

Mo and Will said...

meandbaby said...

I think that is a great idea. You and that baby are priority #1 right now. We'll all be here when you're ready to come back and thinking of you during your break. Take care.

XOXO,
MeAndBaby

gwinne said...

Dora, I've just recently started reading your blog and know very little of the drama. I just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and wishing you and the baby the best.

ex ANGRYcanrn said...

See how many people love and support you?

Michele said...

Sweetie, I'm so sorry. This isnt fair. Your blog is YOUR place to post as you like, regardless of others. I'm sorry that someone has taken that from you. It's not fair.

Whatever you need, whever you need it... People are here who care.

Joni said...

Dora, We'll all be here when you are ready to come back. Take care of yourself and the little bean. You'll be missed while you are away.

Beautiful Mess said...

Take care of yourself! I'll miss you terribly, but I completely understand. Sending you many hugs.

Which Box said...

I"m sorry you're stopping because of this nonsense. For what it's worth (not much!), I cannot believe how absolutely insane this has become. It is too bad people keep fanning the flames via blog comments. This reminds me of junior high - and is reaching the level of mutually assured destruction, trying to suck everyone in. Heck, look at me, I'm dangerously close to saying something other than, I'm sorry you feel the need to take a break. Which is all that really needs to be said. Stay calm and well.

Aunt Becky said...

I'm sorry Dora. Email me and I'll send you all the awesome crap my trolls send me. I promise you'll laugh.

Kim said...

Very sorry it has come to taking a break for you. You were right in not fanning the flames and people could take a lesson from that. Take care of youself and the wee one.

InfertileMadWoman said...

Sweetie, I am sorry... somehow I knew that this was going to get very nasty. You need to focus on you and that little one, and remember that you and "she" are the only ones who matter right now. I have some thoughts on the whole situation, but I think that you did the right thing.

Big hugs to you and "she",
Rebel

MFA Mama said...

I just left a comment on your previous post, but joining the chorus of "we'll miss you!" and "take care of yourself and that little bean!"

From Here To Maternity said...

I'm sorry you're going. Women are their own worst enemy sometimes. Take care.

battynurse said...

I'm sorry. Thinking of you and hoping things calm down soon.

Melody said...

Take a needed break, but I do hope you'll come back b/c you are loved. I very much want to hear how things are going with your little one as your pregnancy progresses. Take care.

Selmada said...

You know where to find me. In the hospital, on bedrest, trying to avoid stress.

I'm sorry this is happenning, I'm not even sure I know what is happenning. I dont know your friend beyond the praise you've lavished on her in your blog since I started to read. I hope it works out for everyone.

Geohde said...

Dora, I am so sorry. You are within your rights to go, but the odd update??

Please?

The Steadfast Warrior said...

I'll be in touch with you because I don't want to miss out on your journey. I'm so sorry this has happened. It's all so crazy!

Take care of yourself that that wonderful little one you're growing. :)

Aurelia said...

I'm so very sorry for all of this and for everything that has happened to each and every one of the bloggers I read. This mess was not supposed to happen, but I guess guaranteed to happen in a world where emotions run high and people get hormonal.

I've been absent due to other commitments but I have been reading, and I wish you the best of luck and the most beautiful baby ever.

Post once in a while, k? Just a quick update?

becomingwhole said...

I'm so sorry. Please do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself. Many, many hugs.

Martha said...

Best to you and your baby. I am glad the OB visit went well.

Billy said...

So sorry about all of this. Will miss you. Take care of yourself!

Kami said...

I'm sorry about your mom's and the community's insensitivity. I support you 100% in staying out it and taking care of yourself. Please give us an update every once in awhile just to let us know you and baby are well

Phoebe said...

I'm so sorry you were dragged into a conflict that was not yours. Take care of yourself. Wishing the best for you and your pregnancy!!
