This morning started out like any other morning. I was half awake, in my pajamas, outside feeding the rabbits and chickens.

I have broken a bone in my hand. That’s the actual doctor’s diagnosis. But how it got to that point is an interesting journey… Before I went to the doctor, I knew my hand was injured. I knew approximately when it happened, but I didn’t remember any specifics. It simply started hurting one day. No… Read More The trials of telling the truth to your doctor
