This is something I'm learning. I finally got to take my kids trick or treating after the mix up the night before. We had a great time even with the 45 degree weather, very brisk wind and to top it all off, rain. It would be nice if Halloween di... Read more

Trying the new medications today for my eyes and I DO NOT like them. First off, the anti-inflammatory the doc gave me is making me dizzy and feel dumb or "stoned". I can't remember a thing and I'm having to write literally every single thing dow... Read more
