My DH and I have talked, he understands how I'm feeling and why. It's people around me who I don't know how to deal with.

I've always done things a certain way, people knew that they could come to me and I'd be there with words of wisdom/comfort. I thought I was very strong in my beliefs, but certain things have made me question what I believe and why I believe it to the point where I'm not even sure I do anymore. So in trying to sort things out in my own head I've withdrawn from all activites that I used to participate passionately in.

Let me tell you, when a very well known passionate person suddenly withdraws from an organization, people take notice! Cripes, I was not prepared for the number of phone calls, letters, emails etc I've received asking if I'm OK, if the family is alright, if I need help, etc, etc. I don't know how to respond to these people because they are all still passionate in this organization. I just need a break and that seems to be unacceptable to these people.
