There is one that pops up each time. It's about Sarah Palin. I responded once, and was pounced on. There was no way I was going to venture into the lions den.
I have absolute respect for other's opinions. We have the right to be different.
But, on a board that is for support. I find this particular thread toxic and ugly. It has gone from an expression of bafflement, to a pack of wolves on fresh flesh. I have not read all the posts, I just checked the last one.
At this point, you are preaching to the choir. There is no one to oppose you. However, in the process you have now started to insult people who have a different viewpoint.I thought we as a gender were smarter than that!!!
have we evolved to be just like the males??? willing to be snowed???
maybe we outsmarted ourselves...we wanted equality and now we are equally as dumb as the guys in charge...guess the adage careful of what you ask for--you may get it--is so true
I am intelligent. I do my homework. Heck, I spent nights doing research on why my daughter was ill.
When I take out my ballot, I am not making emotional decisions, I have weighed the options. We have watched both sides, both conventions.
Just because no one who thinks differently hasn't responded that there isn't anyone else out there. You have hurt one.
It is as offensive as if I were to start a thread on a particular religeon I find rediculous. Destroying someone's religeon doesn't change their faith. Politics and religeon are delicate subjects.
Why is it the folks who demand the most tolerance and freedom have the most difficult time tolerating people who don't think like they do?
Someone was allowed to come on this board and state their opinion about my doctor and his lab. I agree that my posts were emotional. But, if you read them, you will also see that WE have used other labs, as well. I ENCOURAGE people to use all the tools available to them. No lab is perfect.
This lab was only meant for his patients. He did his own research with our permission. It was only a year ago, that while attending a Lyme conference other doctors saw what he was doing and wanted to use his lab. One, who is great at marketing himself, ran with it. This little lab was then taking a lot of requests.
Galehane has spent a considerable amount of time trying to discredit this lab and my doctor's work. If you check at all his posts, they are 99% about the lab. Why? I have red flags flapping wildy over this! And, why not?! The doctor we have chosen is being attacked.
Many say that we SHOULD question. Yes! Question!! But, don't attack! I got PMs from this person telling me to edit my posts so that I did not reveal that they have been in contact with my doctor. He promised that he was not out to destroy him. My doctor told me he's been getting letters and calls from Denmark! He was amused his little lab is making a fuss around the world.
However, the last post Galehane made was very clear the motive. I posted my fears, and got no support.
There are a lot of good things going on with this board. I really appreciate the moderator and his fairness. But, there is a toxicity creeping in that is making me sick. I need a break.
Thank you for all the support you have given me regarding my daughter's health. And without using more apostrophes and commas, I would like to thank you for support you have given me, as well.
There are many on here I respect in so many ways. You have taught me a lot. For those friends, I would still like to communicate with you. I adore you.
You are welcome to PM me, and I hope I could feel free to PM you, as well.
Edited once to correct a typo on the word "creeping"
