> I came to this board to learn from other's experiencence, not to give professional advice -- I see too much of that, not just here, but on other boards on all kinds of topics (IMHO). One should be VERY judicious about giving medical advice over the internet, be they a professional, or someone who has "done a lot of reading". I have decided that IF I AM ASKED (depending on the situation) I will share my experience. However, I think I stepped over my own personally drawn line in my post before last one. All that does is bring every so-called-expert out of the woodwork wanting to contradict me. For that reason, I shall post as an inquirer, which is what I first had in mind. Don't be afraid to ask a question though,we all have much to learn. I am not sure why Dr. Bob lets some of this "advising" go on, but it's not my decision. Do you have an answer Dr. Bob?

Well, advice is one type of peer support. And these issues are addressed in the FAQ:

> Don't necessarily believe everything you hear. Just because you see something on the Internet doesn't mean it's true. Consider the quality of the information as you decide whom to trust. The only messages I take responsibility for are my own.
> Professionals, especially, should be careful not to establish unintentional therapist-patient relationships.
