Last year at this time I had the New Year’s resolution of organization. I started a systematic purge of all cabinets and cupboards. I celebrated each bag I dropped at the Goodwill donation center. I worked my way through the kitchen and then arrived at the bathroom. I dug to the back of the cabinets to discover the items I never use anymore. My cleaning spree ground to a halt.
About nine years ago, I took a trip to the emergency room due to intense intolerable pain. This began an almost two year span of constant physical pain.
