I’m having a self-pity-party, and you’re all invited…

December 12, 2009

I just NEEDED to post and vent my frustration and upset, so please excuse my negative outburst… I’m really suffering tonight; not feeling at all well and I can’t sleep because of the disgusting, acrid, chemical taste in my mouth from the medication.
