does it make u mad??

When u get on here and ask a serious question and u get these people who give smarta** answers or who are just plain out rude for no reason at all. I saw one where a woman wanted advise about pains during pregnancy and someone said i advise u to ask a doc and stop looking for medical advise from some stranger that has no idea what they are talkin about.

  • It's frustrating, yes. I found it especially frustrating during my pregnancies when I would have what I felt was a valid concern and someone would give a cold response. You get used to it though, and have to learn to take everything with a grain of salt. Everyone on here is human, and some people (unfortunately) do get off on putting others down via the internet.

  • What is so rude about that? It's someone's opinion. I've seen a lot worse on here. Some people get uncomfortable when they see people seeking med advice online. I don't care myself but it is what it is, and there is nothing you can do about it. Opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one. I think if you re going to get hung up on answers that you don't like than internet forums may not be the thing to do.

  • this wasnt a question that i asked and yes i understand everyone has an opinion but really all u have to say is maybe u should u talk to your doctor about this. I think it was rude to say i would advise u to stop seeking med advise from some stranger with no experience instead of just saying that she had never experienced that and would suggest her talk to her doctor about it.

  • yes, it does bother me...it's happened to me some and it hurts when someone gives those answers. either they don't realize that what they say hurts, or they just don't care...either way....

  • Ive used this site for a while now and i have answered many of those questions but if they bother someone to see them then i think they should just ignore those. i mean yea sometimes its a bit much but i have also asked some pain questions because every pregnancy is different. My doc would go crazy if i called everytime something new happened. I am on my fourth baby and am experiencing things i never did before. But there are many people on here who have been able to help me out with these problems. I always double check with my doc at my visit and so far the answers i have gotten have helped ease my mind and havent told me wrong. Its just a precaution for some to ask others i think.

  • Yeah,I get frustrated with it sometimes too. I think it takes too much time to go into a persons question and to answer it rudely like that. I don't understand why people get so upset about a woman asking other women about medical advice. Its what we do! I call my mom, I call my Aunt, my sister, my best friends..and ask them all for medical advice sometimes...they never get an attitude. If they don't know, they just say they don't know. I guess its something that we just have to shake our head about and shrug your shoulders...you can't change people..especially people on the internet,lol.

  • When people keep saying why are you using the race card. What else can I use? I have been black all my life, have you? Do you even know black people. Do you have them to your house? Have you ever been called the N word? Have you ever  you had my experiences as a black person would you ever be able to cope?????? I am soooooo annoyed?
