I agree, my original post in the thread had the best of intentions, describing my family's initial exposure to colon cancer and how we are coping, and of course others just couldnt help but to feel compelled to say that what I posted was unnecessary and insulting to those who HAVE been fully healed (which anyone here with half a heart, in their conscience KNOWS that is not the case AT ALL), etc, etc.
In any case after my last post I have not visited the thread to see the responses, as Im sure they are even more angry, telling me even more how wrong I am or how deluded my beliefs are, etc. Im done with the arguing there, but Im just not the person to roll over when jabs are thrown at me. Its over now, Ive said my piece, Im done with it.
