Autumn Renewal

Autumn Renewal poem by SoAngieWrites.com

Injecting humor into the week’s lousy start via Snapchat

Unfortunately, my doctor’s office was not returning calls about the medication my physical therapist wanted me on. The pain plus the frustration of provider run-around wore me down.… Continue reading
