Help me understand "help".

What does this mean in context of trying to conceive or pregnancy? Many members going anon (or maybe just a handful of repeat offenders) come to post 'am I pregnant? Help!' questions.

I would love to know what exactly the cry for help is for. Like, are we supposed to actually help someone that doesn't understand their body? Are we supposed to say reassuring words to either help them keep hope that they are or hope that they do not become pregnant? Does that kind of enabling actually 'help' anyone?

I think today's 'help' question is going to cause me to hit the bottle. I don't get it. Not for the life of me. I mean, Y'all are great. I love the sense of humor and the camaraderie here that you don't get in many other forums. I think very highly of many members here and their words of wisdom. That said, I wouldn't dream of asking any of you to 'help' me with something that you have no possible way of helping me with. It's just absurd. I mean, it's a matter of egg meeting sperm and implantation and any number of other factors that none of us can 'help' with.

Is anyone else as perplexed by the plea for 'help' when it comes to the 'am I pregnant' questions? Please say it isn't just me that doesn't get it.

  • It's not just you, but it just keeps on happening, every single night. Humor is the natural defense mechanism to keep us all from curling up into the fetal position and sobbing ourselves to sleep over this stuff.

  • They keep using that word. I don't think it means what they think it means.
