Do share!
Doesn't look like there's any PDF versions... I read out of my physical textbook. Boo. Coping with chronic illness by Baldwin, Kellerman, and Christensen (2010) and Pain and painful syndromes (including rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia) by Williams (2010).

It's all more on the psychological side rather than on the neurological side you might be interested in. xD The former discusses various models evidence believes helps people cope with pain (ie., manageable goal setting, having a support system, finding meaning in the illness instead of solely ruminating, being educated about their illness and feeling competent, building a sense of autonomy, etc). Plus adherence interventions to help people through treatment methods if they feel it's not working or aren't complying for one reason or another. The latter focuses on damaging thought processes that maintain acute pain and risk it becoming chronic pain, how pain is assessed in clinical settings, psychological factors that can benefit or worsen someone's perception of pain, and psychosocial interventions to help with pain management...

Well, yesterday now, but The Plantagenets - from the rest of Edward I's reign to Edward II, the repeated exiles of Piers Gaveston, earl of Cornwall, his execution at the hands of the king's cousin the earl of Lancaster, and the rise of the Despensers as replacements for the royal favourite

17776, again. It's a story about space probes, immortality, and really, really weird football.

Diverting my reading time between my own crap, A storm of Swords and Wonderbook to figure out how to properly start a chapter and not fall for the cliché dream sequence.

I'm currently writing and re-reading a $1,000 scholarship application. Don't think I'll win, but hey, it's good to have this "ayyy lmao this is my dream" text on hand. It also makes me sound a hell of a lot smarter than I actually am.

Other than that, I'm trying to write Chapter VI of The Deprogramming. Writing comedy takes time, man.

The Long Walk's revised prologue and read over the letters in Flying in the Dark I made heavier edits to just to make sure I didn't overlook anything

I re-read a couple chapters from the very first manga series I got into: Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC. Thinking of buying the rest of the volumes I need for my collection and re-reading them from the start sometime because nostalgia. :p

Uhhh, haven't posted here in a while. Read Different Eyes, Ghost Town, and guidance since last time, I believe, and currently catching up on Guiding Light. Also reading articles on EEO for my human resources psychology class.

So I FINALLY finished reading this book called The Good Earth by Pearl Buck, and...I admit, I didn't like it, so I donated it to my library (Sorry, Mom!). I did, however, start another book, The Girl Who Drank The Moon by Kelly Barnhill, supposedly about a witch who accidentally gives a baby the magic of moonlight and deciding to raise her. Then stuff happens when the girl turns 13. I only read the first couple chapters so far, but it's very interesting.

Man, it says a lot when I'm 25 years old and I find that some kids books are more interesting to me than adult books.
