Tuesday-Newsday #205

NOTE: Another week, another missed deadline and short post. Sorry, but it’s been total craziness here as we prepare for my handicapped accessible bathroom remodel project. I may not be able to post at all next week because we actually start breaking down walls on Monday. I promise I’ll do my best to keep posting while in the midst of all the dust and noise.

Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are all connected to communicating with others about our chronic pain/illness.

Let Me Know: If you’d like me to watch for articles on your pain condition, just drop me a note in the comments section below. 

WARNING:  My goal is to provide the most up-to-date news I can, which you can then take to your personal doctor and debate the merits of before you try it. I do not endorse any of the docs, treatments, info, and meds in anything I post nor can I guarantee they are all effective, especially not for everyone. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!
