Only it's to set me free instead of my kids! I am back in a funk about my son. He's a great guy but has sure made it difficult on himself to grow up. He's 30 and teaching special ed in an elementary school. This is very good and it's taken a... Read more

So another week under my belt. Still walking and still eating fairly well. I am feeling good. The first thing I always notice when I get back to "healthy" is the increase in my energy level. I did get a couple of those bigger chores done thi... Read more

Last week when we got home from Indiana I felt like I was doing fairly well. But these last 3-4 days have not been even close to that. I am low, down, in the well, wallowing in it. I have no energy, no interest in gaining some energy and hav... Read more
