I have absolutely no idea where January went to so let us not really worry about that because it isn’t going to get the month back. Today I am feeling a lot more human than I have in a while. I am in the middle of a flair up, not just my ME and Fibromyalgia … Continue reading Hello February
I am pretty sure that taking 2020 as a learning experience is going to be the best way to take the shit storm that was last year.
