As a result of someone, unknown to me, spreading my story on the various search engines, I have received more than 300 responses from people asking for information about adhesions. In my case I decided to turn this negative happening into a positive one.
I have received only one message which accused me of having a motive other than that of sharing information. Had my story not been put on the search engines the people, who requested information from me, would still be looking for information about adhesions and adhesion- related information. In this respect the Internet can be helpful to others.
It would have been far more courteous if the person, unknown to me, would have asked for my permission to use my story first...but...the Internet has become "the tabloid" that enters our living rooms...so a person can expect most anything to happen. Unfortunately, when privacy is not guaranteed at forums, people do not feel comfortable sharing their feelings and personal information.
