Hi- I think everyone wants to help. It's the delivery of a message that is interesting. Some of us learn visually, others through hearing. But, most of us lose a tremendous amount of information and it goes out the window as nonsense information. Some of us will enjoy bold and aggressive posts that push forward. Others will see it as cyber yelling. If it's all CAPS and the heading is huge, then some people thing you are trying to overshadow others who are trying to express feelings.
This is a support forum- not a control group/forum. Some days, when I hurt, I can't read all of the clinical information. So, retention is down even further.
I think if you open up your heart first and give information in small doses (taylored to each person) then having a differing opinion is so slight.
I was very touched by most of the posts I've read, and one day we wrote about flowers. It was better day. We still have to deal with doctors and should learn to be Empowered...but in tactful doses.
I had a tough day....does anyone care?
With Care and Hope ----Michele
