My brand new, without a single post (but soon to come) blog: The World According to Michelle: Life Goes On. The original reason I began this blog was to document my journey through my PBM. Now, that journey is almost complete. I need to get my tattoos done, but Dr. C made me promise not to try to do it until my break from school! I know that there are always people just beginning THEIR journey and I don't want this blog to be so bogged down with other posts, that they can't find my story. I had always wanted this blog to help people so in order to do that, I decided to create my second blog so I can post whatever comes to mind :) I will still update this blog, with my completion of the PBM journey, FORCE news and updates or any other story that's relevant to HBOC. I figured that blogging helped me so much through my PBM that I may be able to apply that same concept to nursing school! Check back for my first post!
