FarmGirlWorks posted a topic in Introductions and updatesThis site is a go-to to reassure myself that others are traveling and have traveled this road.

I am being extra mindful now of taking Mag powder in the morning and before bed. I started AA and kundalini yoga in mid-May which have both been helpful.
