My Topics

I’ve been told that blogs are most “successful” (i.e., get the most attention) when they’re focused on only one topic. However, I’m not that kind of person. So we’ll say, this blog is devoted to what it’s like to try and live healthfully with several chronic pain conditions… the most new one is rheumatoid arthritis! But that means covering a lot of topics.

  1. Rheumatoid arthritis
  2. Migraines
  3. Occipital neuralgia
  4. Gastrointestinal crap (teehee)
  5. Cooking/food
  6. East Village stuff, because I live here
  7. Emotional ramifications of living with chronic pain
  8. Living with chronic pain in general
  9. Living with a chronic illness

And, of course, I’ll randomly forget where I am and talk about random things, because this is my blog and I get to do what I want. For example, once I wrote a post that was basically an ode to women and how gorgeous they are. Men are beautiful, too, I might talk about that and you’ll have to read about it (or not, it’s up to you).

  1. I wish I had read your blog on colonoscophy prep BEFORE I did the suprep…my ass might not be on fire right now, but at least it made me laugh and I won’t feel weird when I have to fart!! I will start reading your stuff cuz I noticed you blog about chronic pain which I have in my neck!! Thx for blogging about some great topics!! 🙂 heading out for my ass scope!!

  2. Just read an older post of yours about botox for migraines. THANKS SO MUCH!! My son just got botox injections from his neurologist for chronic migraine pain. (About 1 week ago) Then he had to leave to head back to college. Tonight he calls me in a bit of a panic because his eyebrows feel very funny, and he can’t move them very well. Ok — this put me in a bit of a panic. (Full-on Mom Mode!) I told my son to email his doctor — then I of course started researching his symptoms on the internet. I found your blog post, and your practical knowledge of the entire process helped put me at ease. I sent a link to your blog post to my son. He will still get in touch with his doctor, but we are all feeling a bit better now. Thanks so much!

    • You’re welcome! I’m glad it brought you both some stress-relief. It would surely make one uneasy to lose motion in your eyebrows and not know why… but that is absolutely normal. Hopefully he gets hold of his doctor soon and (s)he can talk him through the process with more specificity. All the best to you!
