Check out Patients For a Moment

I'm delighted to say that my post What's In A Name? was included in second round of the new blog carnival for, by & about patients, Patients For a Moment, started by Duncan Cross.

For those who aren't familiar with blog carnivals, they are (usually weekly) collections of posts by various bloggers on a specific topic. There's a number of medical blog carnivals out there (my favorite is Grand Rounds). You submit yourself and the host of that carnival decides whether to include you. Some hosts include all submissions, others sometimes pick and choose what they consider are the best ones for their theme or topic.

I've been a little shy about submitting my posts to carnivals in the past, partly because my blogging is usually more about what's going on in my life than taking more of a step back to look at issues.

Anyway, there's lots of great reading in this blog carnival, so if you haven't already seen it, please take a look!

Patients for a Moment - excellent post. I admit, I have also felt those signs of relief even though I don't want to feel that way. Aviva, I am enjoying getting to know you and can relate so much to all that you share. You are talented writer and I'm so glad the carnival grabbed your post! Take good care, Lisa
