I appreciate your well wishes and prayers, but please don't anyone think I am in poor health. I suffer side effects from a bad medication that after a year,  refuses to leave my system. If not for that, I would be on top of the world!! Thanks to all of you commenting!


I have a worry that concerns me, for

it is related to my health, and

as it is always with me, thus,

it has darkened the backstreets 

of my mind, which used to

shine with hope; I pray 

these dark alleys

will again

fill with

light.

Hello Andrea … it's great that you can write away a little of the frustration so well on a personal issue that must have you fuming at times. It certainly hasn't affected your skills as a writer thank God - thank you Andrea - Lindsay

also, I know you had cancer too and am glad for you that your effects went away. My effects are not from cancer but from a drug for bone strength which I later found out I really did not need. Cancer was a walk in the park compared to Prolia.

thanks, S.O. I am visiting forums of people who still have side effects from Prolia YEARS later. (this drug is VERY unnatural and we are being lied to about it). I am trying to be the one who proves it can come out of one's body. If I can make this happen, I can let these other people know how to do it (as I am trying various means to accomplish it) with only partial success till now.

That drug company has a lot to answer for Andrea, hopefully those side effects will fade with time. Tom

thanks, chris, had to put up something fast. So I thought of the stupid thing always in the back of my mind! Wish it would just go away.
