Not every day, of course! But yes – I know you’ve felt exactly the same way.
That’s been my constant state now for the last many months. And because each of the blog posts and articles I write here has always taken me hours to complete (research, writing, editing, finding photos, posting and promoting) – I had to put much of that work on a shelf when other work took priority.
But I sure do miss my regular posting and then interface with YOU – my favorite readers – here at my personal blog… and so, after noodling it over for awhile, I finally figured out how I can fit this work into my already-crazy days.
As you long time readers know, my posts at this site have always been very long and involved. (just take a look around – you’ll see!) and of course, that’s why they have taken so long to compile for you.
One reason they have always been that way is because there just wasn’t much information available to help patients get smarter, ramp up, empower themselves. But today – almost 10 years after I started in patient empowerment work – there is far more good information available. Media focuses on smart patient advice far more than it ever did. Many good books have been written. Many patients are getting the message.
That is, I’ll become your curator of good, smart patient information. As I find articles, blog posts, commentary – whatever it is – I will share it with you, give a quick summary, and then I’ll recommend whatever I think you can do with it. That might be to embrace it and share it, or ignore it, scoff at it, fight back – or anything in between.
So I’ll begin with the first post in this new series: When Patients Read What Their Doctors Write
And I’ll ask for requests. What would you like to see on these pages? Please comment below.
