There are many lonely, twisted people out there on the internet. I lump them into the same category as people who prey on teens and children...or misrepresent themselves on the chatrooms. They just post controversial opinions in an effort to gain attention. Obviously, negative attention is the goal because positive attention ends too soon.
If VD were a valid CH sufferer, she would be coming here for help and guidance on how to deal with her condition. We are all encouraging her Munchausen by replying to her outrageous opinions. She is obviously just trying to garner some negative attention from someone...ANYONE.
I caution us all to remember that we are dealing with someone who suffers from mental illness. I feel we shouldn't enable her by replying to her anymore. A legitimate sufferer would be here, researching information and using this sight as a resource for dealing with the pain and incapacity of this disease. Those of us who suffer from this realize that we need meds at times...some of us ALL the time. We have families who depend on us to work and function. We have jobs and responsibilities and should never be made to feel guilty because we have a disease that can be controlled/aided by meds.
Ignore this sick, twisted person and maybe she will move onto another board.
