There is no help, Tman.
I am here now, as the result of help from highly trained medical professionals.
There is nothing more profoundly disempowering of someone, than an attempt to help them.
This is not something that you will have to learn, unless the unimaginable happens.
This is just a bunch of cliquey, bitchy little guys having a good old natter. It could be opiates, Trump, whatever, the subject matter is irrelevant. Which is fine, I guess. But all the self righteous crap gets a bit old, and calls of ‘data’ are clearly frank stupidity. But that doesn’t bother you does it? Because that is not the point of why you are doing this.
Lives will be saved by this campaign, and I’m sure there will be a certain amount which are unnecessarily damaged as a result of it. It is a great shame that the media cannot reflect this in their coverage. You guys will take your cue from them entirely.
The greater shame is the behaviour of the researchers and doctors in this field, who have moved beyond the boundaries of measured interpretation and caution, into advocation on grounds that are often quite thin.
But it is what is and won’t change. You can do what you like with it.
