“Knowledge is power!” “Reading Is Fundamental!” “The more you know, the more you grow!”
Boy…I guess those Saturday morning PSA’s sandwiched in the middle of my cartoons DID work, because years later, I STILL remember them! (Along with the words to most of the Schoolhouse Rocks series…*grin*)
Reading has saved me months of painful suffering. (“Hey, ya wanna check my flippin’ gallbladder?” “Hey, have ya thought about trying Neurontin?” ) Reading has also helped me realize that my health is ultimately in my hands…my responsibility…my RIGHT! Two books that have helped immensely in that education are “How Doctors Think” by Dr. Jerome Groopman and “The Empowered Patient” by Elizabeth S. Cohen.

I can almost guarantee that reading these two books will turn you int the Fox Mulder of the Medical World…trust no one and question everything! (I'm such a geek!)
