Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are “How do we deal with isolation?”, “The Challenges of Living with Invisible Pain or Illness” and “What Works for You?”
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!

*FEATURED BLOG POSTS
Remember that even if a Featured Blog Post is written specifically with emphasis on one chronic pain condition, it may still have information and ideas which can help people with any type of chronic pain/illness. I always select posts which I think can provide help for the widest audience.
