Well, of course the main board or the medical board are as "safe" (emotionally, I meant) as any of the boards on this site. What I was thinking is that medical testing is something about which many people have apprehension or want clarification or want to know what other people have experienced. So, I saw it as a little bit separate issue as, say, medicines, or descriptions of conditions. Of course, having a certain condition often necessitates tests or medicines, but tests in and of themselves are a bit scarey.
Certainly they can be talked about on the other boards (sorry - I'm repeating myself) - I guess I was just thinking in terms of a specific area for what I considered to be a somewaht more specific topic.
Just curious ... how many people DO talked about TESTS on the main or biological message boards? Thanks!
