    Congrats @red1976!!
  • Having a good day!  The weather is beautiful. Had my course rendezvous on insomnia today. Just to let everyone know that this course has been very helpful. I am in my fourth week. This course is put on by cancerchat de DeSouza Institute. It was actually mentioned on Ovadialogue by Marilyn. With a cancer diagnosis insomnia for many of us is a huge problem and Ican honestly say that I am learning a lot and that it has helped lessen my anxiety.
