    7/12/2017 7:01:36 PM, by BEATLETOT

    I have been an absolute mess lately. Most days, I can't think, I can't function, I feel like I'm sleeping awake. I can't read or write often, and I am useless at work. There are days when any email response longer than a "Thanks!" takes a Herculean effort on my part. I used to be really sharp, but n... Read more

  • Don't forget the Sparkpeople Grouping function like I did!

    7/2/2017 7:54:42 AM, by RUBYREDIVY1

    I'm picking myself up again. I've had another rethink. I used to use sparkpeople's grouping function when I started in 2012 as I realised which foods I was having regularly.
