NOTE: I will be out of town for more than a week, so my blog will not be active in that time. I’m sorry to say it includes at least one Tuesday-Newsday. If I'm feeling good and my pain is under control when I return from my trip, I will do my best to post again by 2/12. Take care!
Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Post this week is, “Talking to Our Spouse About Our Illness: How Much is Too Much?” by Lisa Copen of RestMinistries.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. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!
