Tuesday-Newsday #64

It’s time for Tuesday-Newsday! The featured blog post this week is “You Need a Rich Fantasy Life When You Live With Chronic Pain” by Sue Falkner Wood.

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. 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!


This study is an investigation into the role of concerns about medication, pain anxiety and self-compassion in dependence on painkillers in people with chronic pain. Click headline to take part. 

Legislation has been introducted to help end discrimination against patients who need so-called “specialty and biologic drugs,” by requiring insurers to impose the same co-payment obligations as they already do for other medications. Read more HERE and HERE

Read opinions on APF shut down:

*I have to include these two stories about pain sufferers who were ignored and/or treated improperly - and both died from misdiagnosis of their pain. These stories make me so angry and sad. Pain, especially in women, seems to be taken less seriously. You can read another blogger opinion on this issue HERE.
