Summer Fibro Update

September is Pain Awareness Month

Our summer days are numbered. Fall is fast approaching, but for now here in Texas is still feels like summer. I just cannot believe how quickly it seems like the summer went by. Another COVID summer of doing little to nothing. We did venture out for a short trip last month.

Out to travel or see friends. Or just to get on with their lives. I, myself, have been ready for some time now to travel or just get back to normalcy, but these words are often easier said than done for a variety of reasons.
