Today my featured subjects are Pain Medication, Prescription Assistance Programs, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The last item is an essay about Personal Relationships: When Your Caregiver is Also Your Significant Other. It’s a thoughtful piece which points directly at things to avoid and ideas to try. Definitely a must-read for those who are married or in committed relationships.

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, etc., in anything I post nor can I guarantee that they are all effective, especially not for everyone. I always include the citation, source, or website so you know where it came from. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!
