I'm exhausted. Worn thin. Tired out. All the go-go-going of the past month and the crowds of the past week have really got to me. My anxiety is sky high, I've made it through a bunch of appointments today, but could not bring myself to go ... Read more

I've been having PTSD episodes and panic attacks. To say I am not doing well is an understatement. I have been in bed most of the day with my pup, except when she needed to play then I had to let the girls watch her because I could not. This is ... Read more

Wednesday, July 11, 2018      8 comments

Knee surgery went well, the staff was amazing and explained everything before they did it. The surgeon showed pictures to my husband while I was recovering. It was not good. Lots of bone spurs. I'm going to need a knee replacement in 5-6 years. ... Read more
