It's been a long couple of weeks. Fibromyalgia isn't something I'd wish on anyone. At least, we think it's fibromyalgia. I'm still waiting on a second round of blood test results to confirm it isn't anything worse. The new medication my doctor prescribed is helping, praise the Lord, but it was a long five days … Continue reading Been Meaning to Write

Last year the gardening bug bit me in the worst way, and I don't think I'll ever be the same again.
