Kirsten- I just sent the article you posted about lying in pieces on the bedroom floor to my sister. Her SO of years just told her he got a job in Japan, and he wasnt taking her with him. She told me she has been in the fetal position sobbing on the floor for days and she was just feeling so pathetic for it. The blog had a HUGE impact on her. That was a very valuable share, thank you.
Stress lowers your immune system- which would explain why you could get something your not prone to, for seemingly no reason. And I have heard mastitis has a huge effect on your whole body, but I bet other ladies here could speak more about that than I could.
I hope you have fun tonight, Kirsten, you deserve it!
My favorite quick meal is bean chilli- just cans of beans, cans of tomatoes, organic frozen corn, and whatever other veggies I have on hand (celery, broccoli, literally whatever). With like, coriander, cumin, and whatever else I put in it.
