[Sorry for the late posting - the Labor Day Holiday pushed back my schedule.]
It’s time for Tuesday-Newsday! The featured blog post this week is “Small Pleasures Count as Big Ones in a Life of 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. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!
