They Don’t Have Cancer


Long story short: I've felt like shit over the past few days. My entire mouth hurt until today (who knew that was a thing) and everything I ate tasted really tart, including water. I feel like I've been hit by a truck, and I've thrown up a couple times. Walks around the block are a... Continue Reading →
