No, nothing I stated in anyway contradicted what you said — because it wasn’t meant to. This is simply a discussion from my end. I went back and read my posts to make sure I hadn’t said something other than what I thought I said. Nowhere did I mention the word “autoimmune”, nor did I “place blame where none exists”. You may want to go back and re-read the posts on this topic. I have the greatest respect for the people on this board and have absolutely no interest in getting into a debate on a personal level. It’s very important to me that everyone feel comfortable exchanging information, questions, and theories without fear of censure.
