Time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Posts this week are the excellent series: "The Four Agreements".
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
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.
Here is an excellent set of writings that are a must-read: The Four Agreements series by Tammy Rome. Although the series is written specifically for those who have migraines/headaches, those with any type of chronic painful condition will benefit from reading it.
