Hello everyone. I am sure most of you know this already, but I just wanted to send a reminder to be careful with whom you choose to talk to on this forum.

Unfortunately, there are people out there that have an alternative agenda. Whether it is to promote a product, for their own kicks or something else, they are lurking. People always think it will never happen to them, myself included, but the sad truth is you do not really know anything about the person or people you are communicating with.

I am posting this message because a very smart close friend of mine was hurt by another on this forum. My friend, like many of you, is very sick and just wants to get better. My friend reached out, gave a little too much personal info. and is now hurting. I do not want to go into too much detail because it is not for me to post. If this message helps one person then it is worth it.

Although I cannot know the circumstances surrounding this situation; I am very sorry that your friend has been hurt. I can understand your need though, in seeing this happen, to offer wisdom for the benefit of others.

Please tell your friend that as a member of HW, this is not characteristic of HW's history and that I hope he or she will be alright.

True relationships take time and we do need to be discerning and know our purpose when reaching out to others.

I pray there will come healing.

Hi bigguymax.  I am also very sorry your friend was hurt by someone on this forum.  I agree that it is not typical of people here, most are very sincere and caring.  Maybe you should let the forum administrator know. 

I hope your friend is getting the help he/she needs.  Your friend is lucky to have your support.
