Friday, November 20, 2020      6 comments

If there was any doubt about me being allergic to sugar, there is none now. Since I was told I could eat dark chocolate because it was "anti-inflammatory" I thought it would be okay to eat that dark chocolate that the family brought home that I ... Read more
