Lyle, when I was diagnosed with my chronic condition which requires daily medication and blah blah blah, the number of people who crawled out of the woodwork to give me "advice" as to how to cure myself/what I was doing wrong/maybe you should try THIS was staggering.

That's probably the most annoying part of a chronic condition -- the I'm sure well-intentioned "advice" which is simply not helpful. Especially that advice which starts with ..."if you just did THIS"...or "have you tried *insert alternative medical treatment with no scientific validation* yet? It worked for my Auntie", or "I find that X works best, have you tried it yet?"....worst of all was the implication that I still had this condition because I either was doing something wrong or just wasn't working hard enough to heal myself. I was actually told in a yoga class in front of EVERYONE that I still had my condition because I didn't try hard enough to touch my forehead to my knee in Standing Head to Knee posture (which I can't physically do effort not withstanding).

I dunno what to say except thank you for sharing your experiences and keep on doing what you know is right for you
