Things have been a bit crazy over the last several months. This weekend I caught a cold and have taken some time to rest, which I probably needed more than anything else. I need to get back on track with my schoolwork and with my weight. ... Read more

My DH and I have been in counseling for about two years--not because our marriage is in trouble, but because we want to keep it from getting into trouble. We have a 10-year-old son with autism and our stresses are greater than the "average" pare... Read more

For nearly a week I've had a horrible time sleeping. I've been waking up every couple of hours. I need, probably, to start taking hot baths again but I had a very hard time getting out of the tub last time. I bought a grab bar at the ha... Read more
