What is it about September? I am back. I am now living in Tucson, and Mom is adjusting well. I have gained a few pounds and time to get back on my program. Hello there I'm finally back again. 2020 was horrible, my body decided to have a revolution and anything that could go wrong did. In three months I was diagnosed with breast cancer, lymphedema, super high blood pressure and my fibromyalgia started flaring. I just about lost it. The good news is that mom's health improved and by the middle of September of 2021 she had decided to move back to Oregon to the apartment building that she'd been living in for the past 13 years. That was probably a good decision for both of us. I found a product that I called juicy nuggets that have helped me tremendously. I am now working in the office part time and restarting my program. I just uploaded Sparks to my phone and we'll be using it to log my progress.
