Just wanted to pop in and say there is nothing wrong with winnowing the good from the hand that's been played for your life and health. Anon person seems like they're having a hard time with their particular experience, and mental distress like that might make them unable to separate personal experience from objective acceptance of another person's relating their own POV. It's not acceptable to take that out on your personal space, though. Anyway. Positive thoughts your way.
thank you, that’s very kind of you
you’re right, I should have been more sympathetic to anon’s distress and responded a little more calmly, but it was difficult to when I started out in a somewhat shaky place tonight (and made those posts from that place), so I felt a bit blindsided and didn’t handle my confusion well. I appreciate your words and support and hopefully tonight gets a bit calmer
