My New Way of Life

For the last several months I have had ongoing health issues and continued to get worse. I am allergic to mold and we are working to get that remedied in our house,but until then when I am home I get sick. Also I have Candida and have had to start a VERY strict diet. NO sugar,artificial sweeteners,or anything containing sugar,dairy,anything with vinegar. Quite a challenge but I am getting used to it. I have spent the last week with my friend, Patricia to build myself up while Myron is trying to get rid of the mold at home. This is a glimpse into my week here.

Patricia brought me pretty flowers
and Cody Boy
kept me company

A New Way Of Life cont.

The weather has been so great,that I have sat outside quite a bit after I got to feeling better
