A little medical update on me: I still hurt! hahaha. That about sums it up. My neuro is helping me, (thank God) he thinks the muscle involvement could be due to the possible short fiber neuropathy and he contacted the hospital to try and speed up the referral for the punch biopsy. I feel so much better mentally. I really felt like I was just hanging in the wind when my rheumy called me and told me that he didn’t know what was happening and he didn’t think it was his ‘specialty’. I can’t stand feeling so dependent on my docs. I vowed to myself to get up each day and think positive. No matter what. OK, enough about that.
I posted earlier about reviewing some really good health sites. I’d like to share some places that I think are a really good resource. I’m not getting paid for this, just wanted to let you know that I’m doing this on my own with no compensation.
I was going to write about Revolution Health first, but I am really excited about a new sister site that they have called HealthTalk.com. I have been surfing through the site and so far, I love it. It’s really cool and interactive. Can a health site about chronic illness be cool? That’s how big of a geek I am. Doesn’t take much to get me excited these days.
HealthTalk has a really nifty feature called Health Talk Radio. I love that idea! You can also download podcasts, ask the Dr., view interactive slideshows, videos, webcasts and a lot more. The one drawback that I see is that their list of conditions is not very large. There is a search box though and I’ve popped in a few things that weren’t in their list and hundreds of articles etc. popped up.
That’s it from me for now. I get to spend the next 24 hours with my 2 year-old granddaughter, yay!!!! She is the sweetest kid. I call her my little pain pill. Well, not to her face, I don’t yell out, c’mere little pain pill!! I actually call her bean. But she has the same effect as a pain pill for me without the constipation. And she is addictive. OK, I’m stopping now. If you check out HealthTalk.com let me know what you think. Especially if you get excited over it so I know I’m not the only freak out there.
Until next time
