  • Staying on the Get Healthy Wagon

    Ok, so I fell off the blogging wagon for a little bit (much of that due to migraines and other chronic pain flareups), but the good news is I haven’t fallen off the “trying to be healthier” wagon. I’m still trying to exercise whenever possible (swimming or cycling on good days, doing some light aerobics […]

  • Discouragement – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    Feeling a little discouraged today about the whole getting healthy thing. This always happens when I try to change my bad habits.
