MOLD and my misery

So I have the fortune of being in pretty decent health and I don't get sick very often.  When I do, it involves one of two things:  alcohol or allergies.  As I get older, the mistakes involving alcohol become fewer and farther in between.  I learn things like appropriate food and water intake before/during/after alcohol … Continue reading MOLD and my misery
