The medications, supplements, and treatments working for me this year.
Last year, to the day, I crossed the threshold into my childhood home in California, with all my possessions from Colorado waiting patiently to be unpacked in the rented yellow Penske truck in our driveway. My dog was howling happily as she reacquainted herself with our other two dogs and my parents were bringing in … Continue reading A Year Ago Today
A while ago, I found the blog called "A Chronic Voice."
