No I did not think anyone here was a doctor or that anyone here represented themselves as a doctor.
I did look at the data that I was referred to, but certainly that was only part of the input that led me to my decision. I relied on data, the input I received from actual experiences and discussions from the questions I asked from the people here, and the doctors that I visited.
Same experience here. I joined a few months after G6.
Hope the op feels better today.
