Update 112321

Hello my zebras and spoonies! thank you for coming and hanging out with me. I’m glad that you’re here.

Today I’m just going to give an update of life, the universe and everything that is me.

I will continue with the compression garments, except he wants me to wear them 24/7. Not sure my skin will tolerate that, but we’ll see. I’m just glad I have a direction to move in. Hoping this will help.
