I had my first appointment with a nutrition specialist on Friday of last week.
It was wonderful! She is a very neat lady who did not make me feel strange about the way I have been eating. She was very energetic and very encouraging.
We talked for a while about what had brought me to [...]Continue Reading →
Oh man. I’ve been dealing with a cold type of thing over the weekend, and I took some medicine for it this morning. I feel soooooooooooo disconnected.

This picture was taken with the highest quality camera phone (note the heavy sarcasm) available.
