    I think we need to be careful when replying to posts, especially if the poster has just received "not so good news" from the doctor

    We have to remember that we are not doctors ourselves and also we need to be supportive and not relay horror stories about (for example) an aunt or uncle who just died from that very disease that the doctor says you have!

    I hope I am not offending anybody, but some of the replys I have read (not to my posts, but to others) scared the heck out of me. I would have probably cried if I had been the poster.

    I know we are trying to help, but we need to think how the poster may feel when they read the response.

    Just my thoughts, maybe I am too sensitive though
