Fasting Day 2: Hiccup in the Plan 8 y
Fasting interjection: Something is amiss in the bathroom.
I’m not sure what happened. I made it to the 35 hour mark (11:00am) with no food or water. I was feeling okay, no particular hunger or thirst.

My general practitioner is very traditional and would not agree with this. I feel as if I’ve educated myself enough on the ... read more
