We have our good and bad days, but some times things get a little stony!

Can anyone imagine passing a kidney stane a day? I bet I could get in to the genessis book of records. In the past 13 months I have passed well over fifty kidney stones. In the past week I have managed to pass 1-2 a day. OUCH! Yes it does hurt.

Some one must be watching over me that I do not go into renal failure or end up loosing a kidney. I have had multiple kidney stones in  both of my kidneys for the past 13 months or more. I watch my diet, drink plenty of water and other fluids but they continue to multiple as fast as I birth them. It has worn me out and caused me to have many infections in my urinary  tract system. I take minimal pain medication because it seems to make me more nauseous. So I just try to busy my self with all my writing and crafts until the pain is unbearable. Yea I know I sound as if I am enjoying this I am not. I can tolerate high levels of pain and half the time I myself don't realize that I am in pain until someone mentions the green complexion I have or the darkened circles under my eyes.

Well I have enough stones to start my own factory! I only wish they would find out how I can stop producing these kidney stones so I could be free!

One Halloween by Carol Fowler

This is a suspense-driven, nail-biting horror story that is unimaginable. If you were on the receiving end of this tale, you would end up with bats in the attic It's hard to figur..
