NOTE: Another late posting, sorry. I think it’s going to be this way for awhile, with so much focus on the remodel for our accessible bathroom. Sorry I’m not posting on time or putting up more links, but I promise to keep doing my best every week. Please bear with me.
Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are about dealing with people who push unwanted advice on 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!
