Book on RSD Available on Bookshare

Just to let anyone who might find this useful know, the book
Positive Options for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
whichh is written by Elena Juris is now up on bookshare. The quality says good, but I know it's actually very good, or excellent, since Mom scanned it and I'm writing a paper using it as one of my sources. I suspect that the medicalese got in the way of the spell checks etc...

It's pretty exciting to me that there is finally a book available about RSD in an accessible format. There are a lot of books I've wanted to read that were chronic pain or RSD related. But they weren't accessible, and a lot of times, I don't have the energy for sscanning. Mom tries to help when she can, but she has a life too (smile). So, anyway, it's so nice that my research paper is giving me an excuse to learn all sorts of stuff that I need to know anyway. I highly encourage anyone to read this book if they're interested in RSD. Some of the suggestions aren't accessible to a blind person, or at least, aren't easily accessible, but there is some really good stuff in this book.

Well, unlike your mom I have no life. I would be happy to scan books for you assuming I can find the titles at either of the 2 libraries I have cards for. I don't usually bother going through and editting out mistakes so you'll get a raw scan but I'm good at scanning and ob 7 is marvelous! It even scans kids bg books. So, if you have titles in mind send them my way, or I could just search and let you know what I find. Shelly

hi - i found your website on twitter (which i just joined and am still trying to figure out) - and i can't tell you how impressed i am that you bother to do all this stuff for disability and accessibility education. as a composition scholar, i study much the same thing - accessibility in digital environments.

BUT before i go off on THAT rant, what i'm really commenting on is much more stupid and simple - would you mind terribly telling me how you formatted your journal? it looks like a wordpress blog, but is powered by livejournal. i'd love to have a similarly clean look - any help would be really appreciated. thank you so much!

Thanks for the compliment. And your question isn't stupid at all. I formatted my journal using the expressive layout, with minimalist blue for the theme. There are a bunch of choices and things you can do once you do that. I think mine is set to sidebar on right for the layout, but i'm not positive on that last one. I got a Google Custome search engine from google coop (http://www.google.com/coop).
The rest is stuff I pretty much filled into edit boxes. I know some html code, but I didn't use any to get the layout the way I wanted. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you might have about it though. My account is permanent, so you can email me at my livejournal email address if you like.
I'd also be happy to help if I can if you have any twitter questions.

Thanks for reading my book!
Hi there,

I'm the author of the book you referenced and am SO glad it's been helpful to you! This link was sent to me as I sometimes am concerned about my private data on the web -- luckily it was a nice surprise. Take care and I hope you are doing better.
