A bit of time away from society may be good, just don't spend it pitying yourself- it worked for me. But after almost a year of seclusion, its quite difficult adjusting back to FHBs* (fellow human beings) and 'normal' life. I'm not sure I missed it, hearing all the backbiting... again, the three things people DO, THINK, and SAY are never the same.
I deleted my Facebook. Yes, there are ways. Its a great site, but I have no use for it. I used to waste time every time I log in, reading about others, thinking of clever status updates... all gone.

finished Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
"I don't want to say my name. I couldn't trust you with it. To do something with it. I don't want anybody talking about me. To say where I was or what I said when I was there. I mean, you could talk about me maybe. But nobody could say it was me. I could be anybody. I think in times like these the less said the better."
