I just realized that I've finally gotten the image of the old me out of my head. I don't see it in the mirror every time I look in there. Instead I see me as I am now and I'm happy but unhappy at the same time. Happy because I'm about 80 pound... Read more

I'm sure everyone is going to be sick of hearing about me and my various trips to Tennessee and Florida. I feel like I have three homes: mine, my brother Scott's and Florida - New Smyrna Beach to be exact. Anyway, my brother only had one week'... Read more

How do I explain migraines to someone who has no clue what headaches are like? How do I explain irritable bowel syndrome to someone who has an iron stomach and can eat anything? How do I explain fibromyalgia pain? I love my brother to death but... Read more

It's been nice to get on the scale and see a number below 200. I haven't been here since 1978. Why do I know this? That's the year my migraines were finally diagnosed. All the different meds I was on and tried contributed to me packing on the po... Read more
