My Second Opinion Appointment

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      4 comments

Yesterday, I had a second opinion appointment for my foot. My foot issues have been dragging on since last October. It turns out that the local orthopedist, who I have seen at least 3 times, was totally wrong. What a relief! So much for goin... Read more

Being Honest VS Being Cruel

Saturday, February 07, 2015      7 comments

I have read several blogs today by people who were disgusted with themselves. They made great progress for a long time and then lost their way. They all had a common thread. Getting back on track and staying motivated is hard. Forgiving your... Read more

My week started off with hubby breaking a tooth and exposing a nerve. It went downhill after that. He went to the dentist on Monday and she scheduled a procedure for him on Tuesday. Since he was in such pain, I went with him on his business ca... Read more
