There have been posts that have been made here on the Lyme forum that have attacked others choices of treatments. We are here to support each other - we are attacked all day long (for some) about our treatment choices and this needs to be a haven, not another place of contention.
Stress is a big factor in any health issue, as a matter of fact, people actually die from too much stress. Since we are all either looking for, going through or have been through treatments for the same type of infections - we need to learn to play nice here.
I have received a complaint and I have seen this in other posts as of late. Members challenging other members about their choice for treatment - specifically using anything other than abx. This is not, nor ever was a place solely for those who use abx to treat their infections. Should another member choose to use a form of treatment that you don't agree with, just don't post, if you can't support their effort. We need to learn to play nice.
No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-members. Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member. Decisions about health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices. "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.
11. No posts of an overtly political or religious nature OR posts promoting advocacy of particular personal, medical, legal, religious, political, or non-profit causes. The forums are intended for offering mutual personal support. Debating controversial subjects should be taken elsewhere. Limited religious references are allowed (ie. "my prayers are with you" or a brief quote as part of a larger post), but the forums should not be used to convert others.
Please, all I am asking is that we all follow rules we all agreed to follow.
