The site is a social network for people to discuss their condition. It's a safe and welcoming environment where members share experiences and support each other and often to form bonds on the site. 


If you're looking for advice for a treatment you're taking, or need help with your condition in which medical advice is required, the best course of action is to partner with your healthcare provider. 


While others' experiences with the same or similar issue may be helpful, you are a unique individual with unique needs and circumstances. Only a professional that can interact with you on a personal level can provide the most accurate and helpful treatment advice.
