Well I didn't take the Arimidex this morning. I wouldn't say that I feel fantastic but I feel magnitudes better than the past few weeks. The big test will be how I feel when I get up in the morning. Normally, I get up and a few hours later I hit... Read more

I feel like one of the kids! You know, when you open the fridge door and look over the contents and then you say, "There's nothing to eat!" I am gradually attempting to rid my shelves of all of the foods that can either tempt me or that I am no... Read more
