I see there are many debates and contentious back and forth on why information is being prescribed and questioning of credentials and qualifications. I thought to myself, wow as if this disease isn't bad enough now we are going to stress ourselves out with this. I think that some here don't like others not agreeing with their thoughts and many think that theses disagreements could be delivered in a softer fashion. There are those here that are out to protect the vulnerable by making sure disclaimers are attached to the information provided. All good stuff but how do we accomplish this without attacking each other. I don't have the answer hence this post.
Here is my experience with HU and how I use the forum.
I desired to learn about a supplement regimen and I found fantastic advice and opinions from Nalakrats and others. Thank you!
I needed direction and advice for the next steps in my medical treatment and I received all I could handle from Tall_Allen and others. Thank you!
I try to take the information given in a clinical fashion and not in an emotional one. Easier said than done when facing death but one that is important if I am actually going to receive what I seek. If I get a harsh response or an arrogant one I take the emotion out read the information provided and I move on to the most critical step.... I research what has been given to me here and I make up my own mind as to how I proceed. What I don't do is argue with the person providing me this information. This would just make me feel worse in the end and I doubt I would gain a lot. I do however ask respectful questions and I get amazing answers!
I treat the research of PCa and it's treatment as a job and try to act professionally here as I would in the workplace.
This forum has been and will continue to be the basis for my list of questions for my MO & RO. I also take my doctors advice and opinions and throw them out here for feedback. It's great!
That's my story, anyone out there disagree? LOL!
