I'm feeling like things are going good but I have to say that bread is such a pitfall for me. I have been working on a replacement for a bread my husband likes. This bread is not as nutritious as homemade and is getting harder to find. So I... Read more

I have a great pain specialist
Wednesday, June 08, 2016      3 comments

Today I had a routine visit with my pain specialist. I liked having him as a doctor right away because he does not just throw narcotics at the pain and he welcomes the fact that I have traditional and non-traditional doctors providing my care. I... Read more
