It’s time for Tuesday-Newsday! The featured blog post this week is “What do you do when you feel like it's the worst day ever and you want to give up?” by Jenni Prokopy of ChronicBabe.com
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!
