> In responding to Sostice's thread the way I transposed my feelings for my own kids to her situation. I can only assume Lou means exactly what he says about saving lives and felt something of the same. I have some sympathy with this. But there is an issue of tact and kindness as well.
Thank you Sigi... Your post was a perfect example of how a person can post their concerns and talk about their reservations about medications in a constructive and civil manner. You didn't have to post the same thing 30 times, and you didn't have to use intense exaggerations to make your point. And you didn't have to hijack the thread to make your point. As a result of your civility, I felt very receptive to your input, and it will stay with me. Best of all, our relationship was not jeopardized in the process. Your post is a model for how to post opposing views without being disruptive, destructive, or hurtful.
