Went to the urologist with my husband today and found out the cysts he has really aren't anything to worry about. Did recommend a strong anti inflammatory and maybe some massage therapy, so I told him I would get him in with my massage therapis... Read more

I started insulin a week ago and my sugars just keep going up! So I called today and they switched it to another one that I’ll start tonight. I hope it’s works. I just feel so bad. Tomorrow is my last day off. I’ve enjoyed it. I needed it.... Read more
