“I’ve been thinking about starting this thread for a long time.  If you scan the forums, there are LOTS of great tips or other words of wisdom.  Problem is, all that good advice is scattered all over the place.  So, my idea is to have a thread devoted to just that good advice. No tip is too simple.  It can be something involving nutrition, mitigating side effects, role of exercise, psychology of treatment, etc.”
