A Letter To My Healing Body

2020 what is going on? Update on life & COVID-19

My friends, I can’t even begin to explain what a whirl wind the last few months have been. I had felt so good with the start of 2020 and just feeling like “yes, this is MY year”.

Things you should do if you are on Prednisone

Ah Prednisone, The pill that most people end up on when you have a chronic illness, the pill that really does work some wonders, but ALWAYS has side effects.
