I just wanted to throw this out there. In an effort to enhance my knowledge of our illness I joined a support group on Facebook. I was also curious as to the likes and differences to DC. The likes were few, the differences were many.
I left the group two days later. They were not anything like the folks here on DC. They reacted negatively to ideas regarding alternative methods and ideas. I'm not trying to run anyone down, we all handle our illness as to how we feel is best for us. But those people were the doctors dream patients. They questioned very little and tried nothing unless their doctor gave permission. Lots of talk regarding dietitians and nutritionists and the worst of all, if it is in the ADA guidelines it is as good as gold.
Anyway, you folks here on DC are very supportive and informational. No one is judged for how we handle our illness. The responses are helpful and sensible and we can freely share different ideas. That's what it's all about. This is a great group here and I thank everyone for all the tips and nuggets of information.
