This is a group of equals, no one is posting as a Dr or any other kind of medical professional. No medical opinions are offered here, only impressions and experiences of others suffering the same kinds of illnesses.
Therefore, Pissed Girl, I must ask you to keep your comments to YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE as a patient. For legal reasons, as well as other reasons, the owner of this site expressly asks that we all leave our professional affiliations outside the door when we enter here.
DecagonWolf, I must make it clear -- any advice you receive here is strictly the personal experience of the poster and should NOT be treated as professional medical experience in any way, shape, or form.
Please adhere to these rules of the Healing Well website. Thanks!
