The worst feeling is when your doctor suggests that your parents aren't suited to be your caregivers. Its not for lack of willingness, but because mum herself is ill, and I worry for her health.

We ended up staying up until 3am before we decided we should head … Continue reading 10.29.16 Recap

Today was our first day. For my personal challenge, I decided to give up soda, … Continue reading 21-Day Challenge
