Day 301 – Eleven Things To Try When You Can’t Smile Away The Pain

Day 116 – Tin Heart

Oh how I can relate to the tin man! One of my new Twitter buds has a slogan he uses and attributes to his Rheumatologist – “Motion is Lotion!” Keep active and those joints will stay happy. The tin man was stuck in one spot for years but let’s get moving, ‘Stand Tall’, and Move […]

Day 110 – Cut open

Day Ninety five – Appily Infused.
