Hey all! Yes, It’s been quite some time, but it just seems like every time I make a grand post about starting to feel better and wanting to post more, my body laughs in my face so freaking hard and says…ummmm….no way!

The past two weeks have been medical visit after med...

To say it's been a wild year would be an understatement! My New Years Eve last year was spent recovering from jaw surgery, and that basically set the tone for the year - more hospital stays in 2018 than 2015-2017. I battled DRESS Syndrome which was caused by one of my...
