First Do No Harm is back up and running

Ok, I was asked to help out with FDNH almost a year ago, but hadn't been able to get all the information I needed to get busy with it, and time got away from me. I now have most of what I need to know to get started with publishing the stories readers have sent to First Do No Harm. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, but I will be reading all the emails, getting back to everyone who sent in their story, and working with you all to get your stories out there. I plan on doing a post every day this month, until I can get caught up with the backlog, so if you've sent something in and you don't see it right away, be assured that it will get posted.
If anyone has new "tales from the medical dark side", send them in and I will post them as soon as I have finished posting all the ones I currently have in line.
Thanks, everyone, for reading, and continuing to let us know what's going on with the medical establishment.


  1. Thanks for taking this on. I was wondering what happened to FDNH the other day, and I'm really glad to see that it will be active again.

  2. "First, Do No Harm" is such a valuable site, and I'm so glad to hear that it's going to be up and running again. Thanks so much for volunteering the time and effort needed to bring it back!

  3. I just spent the last 3 hours reading all the emails, and Barb and I will be checking to see if any of them have been posted already (I found a couple that had). It looks like we're going to have about 50 or so posts, so it may take a bit longer than a month to get them all caught up, but it will happen eventually.

  4. This is just one of the things that I can do to help advance FA (after all, if reading these stories of discrimination helps people stand up for themselves with their doctors, then that's all good).

  5. Great! It got to the point where I was the only one running the site and I just couldn't keep up. I will be able to help out again after I finally finish this damned degree and now that I know that I'll have help!
