Fibro Frustration
Wednesday, December 14, 2016      4 comments

At the beginning of last year, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'd had years of unexplained pain and fatigue, and now finally a diagnosis. But it doesn't make it any easier to live with. I think I should be able to power through life on ... Read more

Meditation Fail
Thursday, October 16, 2014      3 comments

I did my first guided meditation tonight. It was nice, but I don't think it worked. OK, so I wasn't expecting it to solve all my problems and remove all my stress for the rest of my days. I didn't expect it to change my life, or even my a... Read more

Going sweets-free pays off
Monday, August 18, 2014      6 comments

I am down a pound and a half this morning as compared to last Monday morning. This is exciting, yes, but tempered greatly with the fact that I have not been the least bit conscious of healthy living for quite some time. OK, that may be a stret... Read more
