  1. Nothing Tastes as Good as “Skinny” Feels

    Yeah, whatever. That statement might be true if “Skinny Feels” is the name of a person who is dipped in chocolate.

    So my pancreatic attack from last week may not have been a pancreatic attack after all. Granted it took almost 24 hours to resolve, which is longer than a bout of gas or indigestion, but it didn’t require hospitalization, which is good news. My primary physician wanted me to go to the ER, but I just didn’t feel as though the pain really warranted it. Besides, I knew they’d ...
