Myeloma Update

The girls went to Johns Hopkins with me this time, and somehow I remembered these things much more painful during the process, but it is actually áfter' a bone marrow biopsy to your hip that you 'really' feel what they did back there.

I’ve been thinking lately…

Like every 44 year old woman… I secretly love rap music (haha)… Welcome to my mind.  When OCD/ADHD shows up - I start listening and exercising, doing yard work, cleaning house and this prompts deep thoughts.

Takes too long to relax the mind, fall asleep … Continue reading It. Bit. Me.
