I agree with you. The enemy is PC, and its vicous and horrible enough in itself. I see my post got 90% censored, but I thought it was only fair to offer a glimpse of an explanation. I never mentioned a single name or a single episode, I tried to answer in a neutral generic way, so that someone new would understand what probably happened. My mistake, I am not a moderator, next time will leave those thoughts to the moderators.
The fight against PC will go on far beyond our combined lifetimes, and for generations to come. Speaking only for myself, PC has changed my life forever and a day. For me, things will never, ever be the same again, no matter how much I want it to be. All I can is survive, adapt and adjust, keep learning, keep asking questions, keep trying. The thought that PC could take away my life repulses me at the root level of all that I believe. I said this in my early days here at HW, that if PC takes me out, it won't be until after I have fought all I can fight. It will have to take me out without any cooperation from me.
And Zufus, your ability to extract the "out of the box" approaches, researches, new and strange drugs and meds, is outstanding. While it might not make sense to someone on a "normal" PC path, when things go terribly wrong for some, your words and advice might be just the medicine they need.
I appreciate your posts, even when I don't always understand them, and I respect your own personal fight and journey.
