  • Day 1

    In an effort to motivate, hold myself accountable, and blog more consistently, I’m going to start journaling/blogging every day about my struggles, failures, and triumphs with trying to become healthier while dealing with chronic pain/chronic illness (eating better, exercising, being more social, finding things that make my soul happy).

I can’t seem to control myself, but on the medicine I feel SO much better, who cares if I’m hypomanic? Not sure I […]
