I've done a ton of walking the past two days. My back feels fine, but my ankles are paying the price. However, I have learned that if you wrap an ice pack around your ankle for 15 minutes, it works wonders! Ok, so an Epsom soak helps, too, but t... Read more

I've been here before. Just a year ago, as a matter of fact, but for a different reason. This time last year it was due to my back and the fact that I couldn't get a grip on the amount of pain I was in. This year? I caught pneumonia one week int... Read more
