Yes, this. I like reading about the journey that got us all here, those with dramatic stories and those with mundane are equally educational to me and equally interesting on a social level. It is my belief that we all can learn from one another and I absolutely did not read the original question in any negative way. I would consider myself lucky if I had caught it earlier. I do not consider myself inferior because I did not. It is what it is, and how others got here does not define my family. Knowing myself and my belief in alternative healing, I believe that being hospitalized and in ICU forced me to react, a softer diagnosis would have led me to some denial, I believe. As a newly diagnosed parent, I read that the OP was curious about the journey of others. It does seem that sometimes others look for the judgment in others. That seems rather pointless and sad to me. If a post offends you, just move on, don't reply. It is clear that it did not offend anyone else, given the number of people who willingly and openly replied. I will truly never understand the point of allowing an internet thread to bother you in this way.
