This post was to everone not directed at you. However, if you feel the need to take it to heart that is ok as well.
You are correct, we are our own advocate and do know OURSELVES better than anyone else. We have a responsibility to know our bodies and learn as much as we can but, just because we know how WE feel and how things affect US doesn't mean that it is the same for other people. That is why I asked everyone to be cautious about the advice they give, just because something works for you doesn't mean it will work for everyone.
Providing the truth for people is good, being harsh or providing "the harsh truth" can be toned down a bit. Think about it this way, some of the people that stop in here may not have been to a doctor, they might not know anything about migraines/head pain etc and telling them "you could have a brain tumor" is terrifying and unnecessary. The possibility of a brain tumor is there but definitely a smaller chance then them having something less serious.
Let's forcus on sharing things by saying things like, "My experience with xyz is..." regardless of medical training.
Have a great day!
