A bad day can be really bad . .

As a result of the stress I saw blood for the first time in months . . . sighs . . . can't sleep, felt nauseous for a few days and hard to breath one day. I think I was … Continue reading A bad day can be really bad . .

2016 will be different! . .

I really didn't intend to take a little break after my remission post, but I was exhausted.  Instead of napping after my colonoscopy I stayed up and ate myself into oblivion, and was exhausted and constipated for days.
