NOTE: Once again, sorry for the late post. I’ve been so busy on the weekends, which is when I usually do all the work in researching and compiling. We are also in the planning stages for building an accessible bathroom, so I apologize if late posts comtinue in the near future. I’m trying my best to get them up on time.
Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are all about not losing your identity when you are living with chronic pain/illness.
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!
