    After reading several responses and being told that I was in violation of the rules of the forum by a fellow member, I deleted my post about relief from my symptoms. By sending people to a website that I do not receive any benefit from, I do not feel I was trying to sell anyone anything. However, I did not want to cross any lines and I sincerely apologize if I offended anyone. I was simply trying to help the people that suffer from this illness because I understand what it's like having been unable to leave my home whenever I wanted to for the past five years and being in constant non-stop pain and constantly fatigued.

    I did not wish to insult but only to point to something that has helped me tremendously, as I have seen others point to products that have helped them.
    Sincerely,
    Eric

    Even if they are not sold here. What we cannot do is post the URL for the website. If people are interested, they can use a web search engine to find the website.

    No one was insulted by your post. In order to protect our members from scams, and even porn, ProHealth does not allow members to post URL's for commercial websites. Websites which are in the public domain and are not commercial may be posted. These are the ones which usually end in .edu, .org, or .gov.

    Hope this helps to clarify things. You would be amazed at the number of salespeople we have had here and the scams people have tried to use this site for. No one things poorly of you or your post. It's just that we have to have rules for everyone to keep the scammers out.

    One last thing you may not be aware of--ProHealth provides this website and board through proceeds from sales of their products. They also donate a large percent to research into, and advocacy for, our illnesses. They understandably do not want to provide this board only to have salespeople using it to sell competing products.

    Love, Mikie

    Well, I guess I missed all the hooplah over your product recommendation. I'm glad you found something that is helping. Will you please share what it is? Just don't state the web address. I am the INTERNET QUEEN, I will find it. Thank,

    I understand my post earlier would have seemed suspect. I have been receiving the ImmuneSupport.com newsletter for some time now but simply have not posted anything. There has always been plenty of info and messages on the board to provide answers to questions I had, so I didn't deem it necessary.

    I thank you all for being kind even though I made a mistake. I am simply so excited about the way I am feeling. I know and have read about so many people suffering from this illness, I wanted to share.

    The product is a meal replacement neutraceutical.

    I hope and pray that some of you give it a try and receive the relief that I have.

    I know that none of you know me, but I would never want to profit at the expense of the people that suffer from this illness. I hope that you see this now and give what I have said more credence.

    Thanks again!

    Sincerely,
    Eric


    PS-From what was said earlier in the post about not naming specific brands of products, I did not name the product itself but named the type of product. I saw in later posts that someone said the product can be named but not the website. If someone wants the name of the product and all here are not opposed and it does not violate the rules, I will name it. Thanks again! :)[This Message was Edited on 05/04/2006]

    Fill out your profile. Then you will look more like a member.

    You have a Scandinavian name. Are you a Norskie? Erick's son Leif (Erick's son) discovered America a thousand years ago.

    ...that nobody held what I did against me :) Partial ignorance and partial excitement. A little note to look at on my profile, if you have not noticed, I have been a member since February 2004. I do apologize for not filling out my profile. I will endeavor to do that so that you have a bit more info about me.

    The sad thing is: by my original post, I hoped to show that I 'was' a fellow sufferer and instead had the total opposite effect. :-/

    From reading the posts on this site, I see so many good people suffering but hanging in there, trying their best to find something that will help ease the suffering. I only want to help all you good people here the way I have been helped by this product. It may not help everybody but if it can help even a few people, I will be most happy. :)

    Thanks again and I hope this helps someone!

    I will be in prayer for you all!

    God Bless.
