Why Is There No Thread For Success Stories?

Post by nirajnaik » Tue Aug 06, 2013 1:48 am

I feel this whole forum is in danger of becoming very negative and full of fear.

Please can you create a thread where people can share their success stories and methods of going into remission.

I might be completely wrong and their already is one, but I can seem to find it :)

Peace

Niraj

Thats just not exciting enough!

Seriously, good idea but when people are well they frequent sites like this less as they are not searching for answers or solutions, they are lucky enough to be able to get on with their lives!

I think it would be a great idea and the stories will grow over time when people see there is a place to add them!

I know people who are well avoid forums like this because stress is a big trigger factor for this illness and any negativity
can trigger stress, unfortunately forums like this are filled with negative stories!!!

So I did make a post a long time ago on this forum with my own success story - I got well without medication :)

It can be done, you just have to BELIEVE its possible and not listen to negative doctors who have a biase towards drugs
and surgery.

Here is a link to my original story

Message me if you need some friendly advice :)

I cant believe there is not a success story area. Why would you not add this?

Over time this will get bigger. You need a positive area where people can see that you can get better.

The forum will come across very negative if a success stories is not added
