“Bread” Cancer, misdiagnosis journal

In June of 2017 I begin feeling unwell, at the time I had vague symptoms loose stools, intermittent abdominal pain and photo-sensitivity. Then loss of appetite, I embraced it at the time.

Bullets for my gun

If I can figure out how to load bullets in a gun the plan could work. The problem is, there are so many boxes of bullets and I do not know what goes to what gun. Timing is going to be a problem with my husband always up my ass these days. My PTSD has... Continue Reading →
