I don't know what happened to the follow up message that I posted. So here I go again with a shorter version.
As I stated just recently Mike has been a wonderful support and very informative to me and I can't thank him enough..
As for what is going on here..I don't think that anyone with any views that might be different or views that people don't always agree with are taken seriously and much less considered.
I have seen the vicious attacks on the new people for using "migraines" instead of clusters or for bringing up "narcotic" instead of "non narcotic meds" or should we get into the "LSD OR SHROOMS" etc. Sorry I won't go their..No I don't do illegal drugs and don't support it but I do keep my mouth shut about it because it isn't any of my business what you take. But what is upsetting is all of the "closet issues" that GOD FORBID if you bring them up...I can't tell you how many people have contacted me saying that yes they do take narcotics but would NEVER admit that on this board..WHY??? because of all the hateful and vicious comments and uninformed and/or misinformed judgements that are made against you for it.. This "closet" talk also involves other issues too..
As I have said before I thought that this is suppose to be a community of support, friendship, advice, learning etc. but is seems more like a community of strife and division..this person is right and that person is wrong and their is no in between...Lets just keep the issues in the closet and that way everybody will be happy..NOT SO YOU ARE HOLDING BACK VALUEABLE INFORMATION ON ISSUES THAT MOST OF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BUT ARE REALLY QUICK TO JUDGE!!!! I know this happened to me within my first post...not a good impression but I have stayed quite for the most part and just become a "closet reader" and all that I have really learned is that the same people are always flapping their mouths and the ones with something important to say are ran off. I am not saying that everyone has to agree with everyone 100% of the time..but damn can't you just keep your mouths shut when you don't agree or fully understand instead of right away attacking...their are other people who this information could be very helpful
to..I truely don't understand any of this..HOW CAN YOU BE SO NARROW MINDED AND YET YOU WANT OTHERS TO BE SO MUCH UNDERSTANDING FOR CH????
Like I have told mike don't worry about the stupidity..you can't help people that don't want to be helped or that won't even listen or open their minds to things that they don't understand or have very little understanding of..So dust the dust off your feet and help those who reach out to you as best that you can and forget about the rest of the crap..
