Tuesday-Newsday #120

Note from Shannon: I'll be going out of town for my first visit home since moving out of state, so my blog will be on hiatus temporarily. But never fear! I've got today's Tuesday-Newsday to tide you over until I get back. Stay well and I hope your pain is well-managed! 
+++++==++==+++++


Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are: “I am Too Young for This Waiting Room” by Jasminne Mendez and “A Pained Life: Spring Cleaning” by Carol Levy.

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!
