    I will be out of town or catching up from being out of town the next couple of weeks.  The annual Child Neurology Society meeting is here and I am trying to procure employment as a true blue child neurologist no longer in training this summer.  I anticipate no posting for at least the next couple of weeks.  I will get back to writing as soon as my life slows down to its usual breakneck pace.


   The Grand Rounds you have been waiting for your entire life (or week anyway) is now up at Emergiblog, home of the fabulous Nursing carnival Change of Shift.  Check it out for all medicine posts you can handle.  I am very honored to be included in this batch of wonderful, poignant and provokative posts.

  This week’s Grand Rounds is up at the anesthesioboist.  Check it out for a wealth of great posts on healthcare, education, policy, doctoring, the body, health and wellness, and just plain old goodness.

   A very special 50th Grand Rounds is up with Dr. Val borrowing both Kevin, MD and Emergiblog as she is without an IP address to call her own.  Check it out for the very best of the past week in medicine on the blogs.  Encephalon #54 is up this week as well at Neurophilosophy, for the best of neuroscience.   To round it all out Brainblogger has the latest brainblogging carnival up as well to bring the human and multidimensional side of the mind beyond the sciences.  Enjoy.

Mental Health blogs come in two different varieties, both of which appeal to me personally, as someone who lives with Major Depression, I do relate to those who are suffering through the same or similar issues.  My sidebar tends to focus on social phobia, anxiety and depression for this reason.  The internet can be a wonderful support group.  The professionals, on the other hand, are great just for their wisdom and productive advice.  They are of necessity more general, as blogs could never, ever substitute for working face to face, but they give me insight into the mind and discuss research, evidence and controversy..  In the end, I follow both.  Here are a few of the ones that really spoke to me and offer sage advice besides.

The LDS community has a rather robust and diverse blogging community that has really mushroomed the past couple of years.  I was first introduced to blogs in this venue and it remains the one that is by far the most familiar to me.  This introductions will therefore likely be much longer than it needed.  The community is just too broad and numerous.  Once upon a time there was a small group of eclectic blogs, specializing in Mormon history and culture, and consisting of an inordinate amount of Mormon lawyers.  I discovered this self dubbed Bloggernacle, short for the bloggernacle choir, a few years ago.  They have grouped themselves together at Mormon Archipelago, but like to think of the term as applicable to all bloggers covering Mormonism.  As the number of people blogging on Mormon subjects has exploded, there has tended to be more and more diversity of focus.  I feature on my sidebar a series of Mormon Blog Aggregators, each with their own personality.  Read the rest of this entry »

    I am continuing my review of the best blogs mind, body, and soul at least from my perspective.  Doctor blogs have been the subject of controversy with the AMA lately.  There are privacy concerns and concerns about the professionalism of ranting about colleagues or patients in such a public forum.  While these concerns may be valid, this isn’t what I generally see in the blogs, at least not the ones I end up following anyway.  Many, many blogs focus on healthcare and its shortcomings and problems with the system.  These have their place, but for me the very best blogs share the highs and the lows of medicine.  I think the blog format is ideal for sharing the unique experience and point of view that we physicians have.  I think the best blogs humanize the doctor, the patients and in so doing feed the soul.  Here are a few of my favorites- Read the rest of this entry »

The internet is full of a veritable flood of information and it can be a lot to wade through.  I thought I would take an occasion or two to share some of the blogs I’ve found that really keep me going back for more, which are featured on my sidebar, starting with the more outstanding (IMHO) neuroscience blogs out there.  Here’s my top five.
