Image Katie-%2BUnwasted%2Bbook.jpg

I'm having a hard time thinking of topics for Mental Health Monday every week, so I decided to broaden my initial idea of writing things that are directly related to mental health.

It’s hard to pin down the exact number down since there are so many variations in muscle anatomy.
