Tuesday-Newsday #122

Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are: “One Migraine Patient’s efforts to ease her pain by finding any food triggers leads to unintentional malnutrition” by Kerrie Smyres and “Make Different Mistakes: A Cautionary Tale From the School of Hard Knocks” by Annie Sisk. Both these posts focus on difficult issues. Being honest about needing help can sometimes feel impossible - but it’s often exactly what we need. Please don’t miss these two important posts.

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!

Note from me: 
    The first featured post is very important for all pain patients regardless of what their condition is. The writer’s effort to find relief from her debilitating pain ended up causing serious medical repercussions. Always keep your doctors updated on what you are doing on your own, even if you believe you are doing the right thing based on medical advice. We can’t always know how our individual bodies will respond, and having a constant connection to our treatment team is extremely important.
    The second post, though a different situation, has a similar thread: you have to be honest about when you need help. Don’t tell yourself that needing help means you are weak or that you’ve failed; asking for help may be the strongest thing you do for yourself and prevent you from having even bigger problems. We are all human and none of us are perfect.
