Don, I disagree with you. I stand with Ginny, Michelle and John. A lot if us learn a great deal from other people's problems, even if they have different conditions than we do, and regardless of whether they've had different experiences experiences.There's a reason for this. It's because the one experience we all share all the time is the human experience. If you don't want to read a bunch of messages, that's your prerogative. Just delete them. But I consider every poster on this board my sister and brother and I want every single one of them every single time to feel free to post and respond to all.I may not respond to posts concerning things about which I have no knowledge or experience, but I appreciate and want to keep reading every single one of them.
Respectfully Don, this is a group about sharing information. You are here voluntarily.
I subscribed here after being diagnosed with a thoracic aortic aneurysm about a year ago, and have gotten many good answers here just from reading. Answers to questions I might not have thought about asking my cardiologist or cardiac thoracic surgeon. Do I follow up with my physician? Yes, because I never take any answer as fact. BUT, the members of this group also provide a perspective that most doctors cannot- that of patient, and patients of a very specific issue.
Are there days I don't feel like reading responses? Certainly, and then I hit delete. Pretty simple.I wish you the best, but life is about choice that we are all blessed to have. Exercise your choices if you must, but you do you!
I find that when I hit "Reply to Sender," I have to log in, but when I hit "Reply to Group," an email comes up right away. So it's a lot easier.
I don't read topics or emails that aren't of interest, so I don't find it a problem.
