    I love how you have collected these top Tweets (blog posts via Tweets) and list the topics. It’s a great way to collect important posts for yourself and others to go back to refer to. Thank you for including my post on Low Dose Naltrexone. I’m passionate about getting the medical practitioners educated on it’s off-label use (hopefully, to eventually get it “on-label”).

      It was the readers’ choice, so it wasn’t my decision per se to include it… it was just good! 😉 I enjoy compiling these just for my data pleasure, and I do retweet the ones that people liked in hopes that more awareness is raised.
