Looking for Something?

The way relief continued…


A few months into my implant and I felt like I was human again… my senses were back and it was incredible!! That thick pain fog was lifted and I could taste, smell, see, concentrate, focus, remember, listen, think, plan, dream, enjoy, laugh, read, oh what bliss!!!!
