What in the world?



So this was my first response when introduced to blogs. Sure, I had run across blogs on internet searches, but I ignored them as unreliable sources of information (do a search on any search engine for fibromyalgia and you will understand; I doubt Star, age 19, from Can Do, North Dakota, who works as a casino drink server on the local Native American reservation can augment my knowledge regarding the subject). I mean really, what use does a blog serve for a middle-aged physician in rural America with limited free time? It wasn't until my wife introduced me to some of her favorite blogs and subsequently started her own blog (http://www.theunconventionaldoctorswife.blogspot.com/) that I took interest. Thus, I decided to start this blog, not as a source of medical information per se, but rather as a source of communication, humor, insights, and thoughts for my friends and family. I thus hope this blog makes you ponder, laugh, smile, and even wonder "Is he alright? Does he need some counselling?" (don't worry, I'm already there - this is part of my quack's therapy requirements). Read on and enjoy.
