End of Trial – New Beginning

Jeanne’s Take Where to start? At the beginning of course. I met Ingrid at a low point in my RP journey and it’s safe to say that what I read in her blog changed my life. While researching the ever-elusive “cure” for RP, I stumbled on Ingrid’s adventures with acupuncture and knew I had nothing […]
