Pain = Buying Tons of Books
I figured out when I have a flare-up or my knee decides to bum out for the day, my mom used to placate me with books or other gems that shine brightly in this world regardless of the pain.

For Kyra…. because I’m a horrible friend and forgot to text her own her actual birthday. Here is my soothing voice singing to you from Vermont! Love you and stay strong!

Day 1) • Severe and unbearable vertigo that did not go away for 10 hours. • Insomnia due to unbearable vertigo Day 2) •… Thought I should just chime in, because without Lyrica, I would not be able to...
I would not be surprised...
