I'm starting to question what peoples' intentions are for being here.
 
Ask yourself - Am I supportive of others? Do I contribute helpful advice if I feel I am up to doing so? Do I get the support I expect from everyone else even though at times I may not be well enough to reciprocate?
 
If you can say yes to all of these things, you're in the right place. If not, maybe you shouldn't be here.
 
Sorry if this starts an argument but I don't want to attack any individual(s), and there have been SEVERAL situations lately where criticism/patronization has replaced support.
 
I know why I'm here. And I know it's for all of the reasons I just mentioned.

Jen-

I believe I know whom you are referencing. It has not gone unnoticed, and steps have been taken this evening to solve the issue.

This poster is not what HW is all about.

We are here to support each other.

Jen i am normally in AP and Fibro, but when i saw the comment you recieved about the dentist, i was astounded. HW is a place for support, understanding, encouragement- not for petty sarcasm and negativity.

All the best with the dentist, i assure you that you are NOT alone in fearing that situation. i also hate the dentist for similar reasons. choose to ignore peoples bad attitudes- you can do this!

Jen, This is a great post. I'm sure everyone will read it and take the message to heart other than the person who should. lol

Haven't felt well enough to post much lately but I try to be supportive and hope I'm successful at least some of the time. This is a great group of fantastic people that I'm very thankful for. We are all struggling and the last thing we need is someone who is self-absorbed and not supportive.

I'm glad you managed to get out for a little while the other day and hope you continue to do so. Isn't it amazing how just getting out of the house can do wonders for our spirits?

Scorpio-

LOL, I did worry about that, but I don't think everyone will blame themselves.

The thing is...it's perfectly okay to take advice and not give it because sometimes we're just in a position to hand out anything positive, but IN THAT CASE, we should keep the negative in as well! Yeah? I think so. :)

I joined HW to find out all i could about lyme disease as no one here knew a thing about it then. since then i wake up each day and go straight to my pc to read every post.

as i am so new to everything and not in treatment yet i can not comment on a lot of things, but i feel if i read a post of someone needed help and i am able to give it i jump to it.

many times i have seen post pf someone thinking of hurting themselves or just given up. i can not sit back and not respond. some times i wish i was able to reach thro my pc and grab them up and hug them. to let them know they are not alone, and that someone does care.


Jen sorry something upset you enough to have to make this post.

nice post girl your so wise
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

Jen, I didn't mean that people will blame themselves. I meant that everyone would understand your post and agree with it.

Hi Jen,
 
I feel I am supportive of others, actually sometimes I read posts and cry as I feel other's pain but I don't post.  As far as contributing advice, I hope some of my advice helps...  
 
I know my view of this disease is quite different compared to most..  yet I talk from my own experiences and what helped me get better so I want to share it with everyone hoping that I can help another... 
 
I think where I go wrong is that I don't post about my own problems perhaps because they are not lyme related, maybe I should? 
 
Funny, getting better was and still is more scary then getting sick.  I spent 10 years in a dark tunnel and when I became better it was so scary for me and sometimes still is...  I developed habits over 10 years and sometimes I still want to go back into  those habits that were not healthy if that makes any sense...
