A helpful link and some choices....

I just read an interesting article that I wanted to share with you all. First, it talks about the FDA advisory committee's recommendation to eliminate acetaminophen combination painkillers. I'm thinking this could be bad news for many of us. I take Tramadol which is an acetaminophen combination drug. It doesn't work great but it takes the edge off my afternoon achyness without turning me into a zombie. I'd miss it.

Then it discusses natural ways for easing fibromyalgia pain. I was astounded by all the things Epsom salts can help with and I am going out to buy some tomorrow. You can read the article by clicking HERE.

My second reason for posting is a bit of housekeeping. As I'm sure you've noticed, I changed the template awhile back. I just chose this template as an experimental one and would like your help (both fellow authors and readers) in choosing a more permanent template. The problem with this one is that it doesn't say who posted the entry and I don't see a way to change that. Plus, the grey on pink may be a little hard to read? Personally, I'm happy with anything that has wide margins and doesn't have the text in boxes. I'm going to post a few links to blog templates below and I'd like you to tell me in the comments which ones you like. Just click on the words to view the template.

Here is a cute one, one with red, a pink one, black and pink one, a cheerful one, an ocean themed one, a red and black one, a flowery one, one that made me laugh, a purple one, or, if there are any other ones you see along the way just let me know.

Also, I realized that the day/time stamp should be in eastern time since two of you are on that side of the country.

I hope you are all feeling better than I am!

I'm sure you'll get a 100 different responses, but I thought I'd give my 2 cents.
I LOVE "the pink one" because it looks how I usually feel.......Spacey!

1st choice: a pink one
2nd choice: a purple one
3rd choice: a black & pink one

But really I'm fine with anything you pick. I'm not hard to please, I'm just glad I've been included in this blog. It's a real blessing to me. However, I stand by my first choice for the same reason: It looks spacey, which is how I feel most of the time with the fibro fog!!!

LOL You are so right Teresa! The pink one may just provide the right tone for how we all feel - spacey!

My hope is that everyone feels comfortable enough with the blog that we all post whatever, whenever we feel like it, whether it's helpful, informative, whiny, spacey, goofy or just for fun. And that you all feel free to change the template, or anything else, any time you feel like it.

Adding photos is really easy too, so that's something else we could all do to personalize.

Well, here it is - The strangle little town theme, otherwise knows as "the pink one" So far, everything seems to work - it says who posted and the comments link comes up. And it definitely fits - my head is right there in those stars.
