I wear a lularoe tunic type shirt, called an Irma, it’s short in front and longer in back. I wear these tops with leggings. I usually wear flats but dress this up with low books on occasion.

Hello everyone I’m new to the forum. I was diagnosed with clostridium difficile in August 2018. I took an antibiotic in April of 2018. And started having bad stomach issues on & off. Then the end of August I felt like if I didn’t get help I was going to die. I went through 3 rounds of antibiotic to try to get rid of it. And they failed each tim…

I couldn’t agree more. We are more than our disease and always in life the right people show up. I’m glad you had a pleasant date, and kudos to your best friend. Awesome words of encouragement she gave.

Always dancing,
