I just want to remind everyone that not everyone online is who they say they are. You have no idea who anyone is and no way to verify it. You have no idea that I am an ER nurse(I really am but you don't know that) or that someone who says they are a dogcatcher is really a dogcatcher.
I just want to advise everyone to not take what they read at face value-do your own research and make your own decisions. People can be anyone they want to be online. Laypersons can be very educated and can be more helpful in explaining things in easy to understand terms than sometimes physicians can sometimes. I think that is wonderful and it's great how we can all share our experiences. But please, just remember that some serial killer could pose as a medical professional online and even wnat to meet up with you. Smarter people than us have been fooled.
Good day to everyone.
