Hey All. Maybe nobody cares about this but me, but out of respect to all of you, and because I REALLY value the forum, I just want to clarify when I post as someone who has UC vs. when I am posting for research for my writing.....
As some of you know, I am doing some freelance writing for the New York Times about Ulcerative Colitis. I feel really strongly that all of you, as well as this forum, can be a great resource for research, so I want to be able to ask questions on the forum that pertain to my writing. However, I also want to respect your privacy and the general culture of the forum. So, I just wanted to let you know that anytime I am asking a question related to my NYT work, I promise to always put that very clearly in my post, so that you can chose whether or not to participate.
Conversely, any post that is from me that does not clearly state is being used for my NYT work is unrelated to my research and is instead about my personal experience with UC, questions I am hoping you guys can help me with to keep me from going crazy...... so, for what it is worth, I just wanted to throw that out there..... -Loren
