I’m Glad It’s Me

I think about this often. What if this whole situation didn't happen to me and instead of being the patient, my loved one was the patient and I was caring for them. Not that I need much "caring" for. Maybe emotionally more than anything but lets be honest, I needed that before my diagnosis too… Continue reading I’m Glad It’s Me

Now Back To Your Normally Scheduled Blogging …

Well, hello strangers! I have to admit, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my blog this Summer.

I am always looking for natural ways to aid in my journey with my Desmoid.
