I follow you VIA GFC and I love your blog!


I'm in no way an expert on this, and I do not imagine for a moment that C-E analysis is a sufficient moral guide for medical decision making. My concern is that these days we are thinking ONLY about cost, and not about the tremendous value that medicine also delivers.

A premise of Healthy Survivorship is that each individual adopts and develops the language that works well for him or her.

For me, "normal" in this context has connotations of regular, usual, natural. For years I dealt with big and little crises and discomforts (pain) that made "normal" an elusive goal.

For me, the notion of developing a "new normal" that integrated the changes and losses that accompanied my illness enabled me to regain that comforting sense of normalcy that would otherwise have been impossible. For me, the notion of a "new normal" helped me get good care and live as fully as possible.

Since the phrase doesn't work for you, I hope you can find other language that does. I'd also appreciate your sharing, if you don't mind, because it could help me understand you and others who don't find comfort in the notion of a new normal.


Nice post on Fibromyalgia. Did you hear about the Prolotherapy in which needles are used in treatment. If not try it, i heard and read about it.


This site is excellent and so is how the subject matter was explained. I also like some of the comments too.Waiting for next post.
