In reply to My concern about this site, posted by willyee on April 4, 2007, at 19:09:50

Im not sure the original post was complaining or attacking, so much as a question of what might be done with such potent information on the depths of our experiences and levels of despair we all know, since very few of our real-life docs have the time or inclination to really scratch the surface and understand our reality. I think its a reasonable question.

For example, last year there was discussion here of perhaps having babblers who were attending the Babble reunion/get-together/whatever it was in Canada, that members of us might be invited to speak with groups of p-docs at their p-doc conference, something like that. I did not go, so am sketchy on the details, but was very pleased to find that what happens on this board was going to be used to enlighten and hopefully improve at least some p-doc's understanding of what this experience is really like, as opposed to the 50-minute clips they get in their practice. It seems to me that the poster was really inquiring along these lines as to whether Dr Bob, in his unique position of being both a doctor, and holder of this information as to the level of suffering and frustration we experience, whether he might use that unique position to facilitate some kind of actual use of this information to help our cause.

Maybe I am misinterpreting, but again this did not in any way seem to be an attack, but rather a reasonable question by someone who has consistently tried to be of help here. And who of us knows? Maybe Bob does try to use this information for the greater good. I dont know that the original poster knew of the Canada thing. There may be other efforts we dont know of. Maybe its even just a matter of making note when efforts like this are made, so we can all feel like in addition to gaining support and information and helping each other, we can have some feeling that it also helps the greater good.

Disclaimer necessary because it really is getting contentious around here to state ones opinion, compared to a few years ago when one could do so without the inevitable dogpile, this is only my opinion of the matter - please dont bother to attack this post on my behalf, unless you feel you must, as I will not be reading the followups.

Willyee, Im sorry your post went off on such a tangent, and I understand your frustration at that. I think you made a reasonable point.
