pallitive care, fibromalagia etc...
I got to this site by accident, I do not even remember what I was searching for and I luckily listened. I love the fact that this site gives you the choice to choose what you want to listen to, and I eventually listened to all of them.
since I am a baby boomer, have now been looking illness in the face, w/ high blood pressure, thyroid , arthritis, fibromalagia, depression Anxiety, been in and out of the hospital, w/pain, sometimes not knowing what caused it. But relieved that it was not a heart attach, and that I was ok, could go home, and I was not gonna die, not yet anyway.
