Fri, Mar 8 2:33pm · Meet @jenniferhunter: Where Health and Art Meet in About Connect: Who, What & Why

@jenniferhunter That is an amazing explanation and beautiful painting. The detail! And thank you for sharing your insight and artists POV. I love hearing about the creative process. Being a writer myself, I think it's fascinating examining what our work can uncover about ourselves and the world at large.

PS–I love those doors as well. That building!

Fabulous interview! I love your TKAM quote and your motto 🙂 And congrats on the Lighten Limbs milestone. I too started getting fit and healthy after my cancer diagnosis. One day at a time. It's amazing what exercise can do for the spirit, and all the better with friends to support.

Great feature Teresa @hopeful33250! John @johnbishop, that is a great article–I am completely getting #1 and #2. There is a need for hiding in my book at home under a blanket after too much socializing, lol.

Jan 31, 2018 · anyone have experience with zoledonic acid infusion for osteopenia? in Breast Cancer

You poor thing! Life refuses to slow down for us doesn’t it? I find no matter what I say to myself on rest and time, there seems to be always something with the kids or work that needs to keep going. But I refuse to let them interrupt my relaxing bath time–lol! Lock that door and hide is my motto. 😉 I hope the treatments get better and get done fast for you. Lots of hugs coming your way!

Hugs to you on dealing with all of this. I hope things are going well. And thank you for the insight, I was wondering how bad it might be the first time and if I should plan to be in bed or what. I’m glad to hear you did only experience those symptoms once.
