This is a post I have been putting off for quite some time. It's personal and scary to share. But something tells me that I'm not the only one who deals with it. Anxiety is a word that went from never being spoken as if it didn't exist to being thrown around casually as if [...]
Day 1: I've got this, it's no big deal. I actually feel better already. Maybe that's just in my head? Day 2: Woke up hungry, still hungry. I really miss my hot sauces. This medjool date is the best tasting thing I have ever had in my life. Day 3: I haven't eaten beef in [...]
