Fear: noun:  An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Cardiomyopathy Support Group

Last night was my first time ever going to the Cardiomyopathy support group at Yale New Haven Hospital.  My good friend Sarah came with me and it was an experience to say the least.  I didn’t really want to go in the first place.  I like to live in a place where I am 100% […]

Hiking with my dog…….

Who doesn’t love hiking with their dog?  I thought I would, however I had failed to forget that my dogs legs are about 1.5 inches long.  She did try and give it her all though.  It was such a gorgeous day out today.  The sun was glowing off of the red and golden leaves the […]
