Well, I certainly can't disagree with sharing information by anyone who comes here, so let me say Welcome. However, this is essentially a help and support forum, so please remember to include the human element in your posting, rather than rote copy and pastes of articles without intro. We actually have a really good data base built up here and translated cut and paste jobs with no rhyme or reason for why they are being posted is sorta suspicious and redundant for most of us. Also, please be aware of the Forum rules about
use of copyright material. A short partial quote is fine, posting full copyrighted articles is not allowed here. Posting links to other sites is subject to review on an individual basis by the moderators.
There is no hidden rule about
having to write your story and share it with us. However, each regular here is encouraged to share their details with others here, so we can know where each of us are in our treatment Journey and can beter understand where they are coming from without having to aska lot fo questions to understand why a certain question or request is made. I will be honest with you and tell you that unless you share personal info about
yourself (in other words, become a human to us, rather than a collections of letters), you may find your acceptance not the thing you may wish for, if you wish for acceptance and others responding to your posts.
I also would remind you that we have some very sharp, intelligent guys here, who are constantly scouring the available source material for new stuff, and they just may not see the value of the reposting of old, outdated or copyrighted data. Also, posting with a reasonable expectation of some value for the reader is expected. With those warnings and issues made to you, then Welcome to the Forum.
