Well SlowBro, what can I say?

Us "boomers" are pretty much impervious to insults and yes, I believe that life is the real game, and other games are practice sessions for life. They are all important in their own way so where is the great divide? Why can't life be fun?

In my world the same applies to serious subjects and humour. Some of the most serious lessons in life are often accompanied or softened by humour. They are both communication tools and not necessarily incompatible.

I've not come across the word contrarian before, and it does apply to my role in this forum, (example) so that's something new that I've learned.

I'm sorry if you had a bad experience, but I make no apologies for my existence on this planet, or in this forum.

I like to watch and listen and learn (thanks for the info on lab tests btw) and occasionally express a point of view.

I try to avoid dishing out advice, except by deduction or implication, but I do like to question.

Shouldn't a good argument or observation benefit from reasonable scrutiny and welcome a healthy debate?

Your point was made, your points were valid and accepted, but there are other factors to consider too and we don't have to be in possession of a doctorate to have experiences or comprehension or a valid point of view.

Professionals do have a vast array of knowledge and data, much of which is based on input from patients, so a patients point of view must have some merit too, at least in a cumulative sense.

For me, asking questions, provoking responses and gathering the broadest range of viewpoints, (yes even yours) is how I make sense of a complicated and confusing world.

Others navigate through life by different criteria. That's fine.

It's the variety (yes even the insults) that makes life interesting.

So don't let my questionable attitude deter you from participating. :)
