Welcome to a dog days of summer edition of Good Reads for the Weekend. I have a lot of links to share with you this time, so let me get started...
Read Me at Colloquy Moms
First, have you visited the Colloquy Moms website lately? I'm going strong with my weekly posts there and invited you to check out the latest ones, like A Better Kind of Clean, Viagra vs. Birth Control: Do We Have Our Priorities Straight? and What Are YOU Doing to Prevent Your Kids From Getting Fat? Please leave some comment love for me on the Colloquy Moms website if you enjoyed these posts.
ChronicBabe Blog Carnival
Next up is the ChronicBabe Blog Carnival #10 and the topic is How Do You Deal With the Medical Establishment? My post Dear Doctor: My Wish List of Things You Can Do For Me is one of the many posts featured in this edition. Other interesting posts include Is It Time to Rethink the Fibromyalgia Doctor-Patient Relationship?, Take Two Happy Pills and Call Me in the Morning and Doctors Are People Too.
The National Fibromyalgia Association's Fibro Blog
I got a special surprise this past Monday when the National Fibromyalgia Association mentioned Oh My Aches and Pains! on their Fibro Blog as one of their favorite blogs. They specifically liked my recent post How to Really Help Me When I Ask for Your Help. I am humbled and honored by their recognition and proud to by one of many voices in the blogosphere bringing a greater awareness to the needs of people living with fibromyalgia.
Check Me Out on YouTube
Finally, I made a video this week. It took way more time than I expected and flared up my symptoms in my hands and arms, but I am hoping that all my work will pay off when I win the American Dream Video Contest sponsored by the National Disability Institute. The Grand Prize is $1,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C. to present my video at National Disability Institute's 6th Annual Real Economic Impact Tour Kick-Off Event. If I am selected as a finalist, I will need your help in the form of votes for my video at the Real Economic Impact Facebook and YouTube pages.
But for now, please head over to my YouTube page, view my video Selena's Dream Job, based on my blog post My Dream Job, and add your comments please.
Have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday!
