Here's a post I wrote yesterday. And since I'm exhausted from orientation at my current internship, I think it's still beneficial. Note that the evil headache has gone away.

I have a new theory: What doesn't kill you doesn't kill you. That's all. I'd love to blog about something intelligently today, but on top of the RSD flare, I have one of those evil headaches which cause me to want to avoid all light, smells, sounds and other sensory stimulation. This one is particularly bad, and I'm not sure why. Just when I told a friend those were getting under control, whatever these are.

Since I can't blog to the extent I'd like to, I'd like to point out a few great links:
First, I want to say a huge thank you to Denise, who posted about
RNovember is RSD/CRPS Awareness Month
at BlogHer. I truly don't know how she manages to keep up with all of the blogs she does, and post about them so eloquently. Thank you, Denise!

We've been having a conversation on the
Previous post
about various treatment options, including a few non-drug treatments which look promising. Scroll down to the comments and read about them. Also, it would help if I actually remembered which posts I've commented on, and which treatments I've asked questions about. It's generally not the best netiquette to forget that you've asked the same question before...

I'm really excited to see the
Real Women, Real Pain
campaign. After spending time on a women's college campus for the last two and a half years, I've seen that there are truly some differences in how we are treated, and how we communicate. I think it's helpful to have this kind of attention paid to these issues.</p>

Finally, I just want to say that I really value all of my readers, both new and not new. There are some new readers from LJ Idol, and I want to say welcome to the group. And extend an offer I occasionally make. That is, if you have questions, feel free to post them in the comments, or email me using the form which is linked in the sidebar (I think the sidebar is on the right, it's on the bottom with a screen reader anyway.)
