I went from a sinus infection to cleaning my system out from the antibiotics. I went from that to my back acting up again (it's raining). I ran out of my back pills yesterday. My back hurts so much that I didn't sleep a wink last night. I am... Read more

Although we have a long way to go in fighting this virus mess, we made it through the year. I've survived breaking my upper arm in three places, a sinus infection that I didn't know I had, and reactions to medicines. I know I need to re-think ... Read more
