I’m posting this because we regretfully had to remove a recent post that implied the need for professional or medical help. Although an incredible level of support and advice exists in this community it is anonymous, online and not professional in nature. In a critical situation anonymous, online advice carries the risk of misjudgement and harm, however well intentioned. We have to stick to our rule of taking down this type of post for safety’s sake.
We have contacted the member with advice and contact details for services that can provide the appropriate level of advice to get through their situation. From the bottom of our heart we wish them well from the whole community and hope that they can get through this situation as quickly as possible.
