Extra, extra, read all about it! It's Tuesday, which means it's time for the pain news!
Today our featured subjects are Dealing with Airport Security Checks, Lupus, RSD/CRPS and Coping with Pain by using a positive attitude.
Just a note: Even if an article is written specifically for those with a pain condition different from yours, doesn't mean it won't provide inspiration or helpful information for you as well.
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, meds, or whatever! in anything I send, nor can I guarantee that they are all true, especially not for everyone. I always try to include the citation, source, or website whenever possible so you know where it came from. As is the case with ANY health info, always get your doctor's opinion first!

“By developing a positive and constructive attitude, you make life easier for yourself and for everyone around you. You are more than your pain. Never forget that. It may not always be possible to return to how you were before the pain began but you can still make an interesting and joyful life for yourself with the possibility of contributing to society in some way.”
