What am I missing?

I am blown away by the many people on here who post things like, "Should I go to the ER?" "Should I take my child to the ER?" Or even "Here is a pic of us in the hospital". It makes me sad that some people have no family or friends IRL and have to ask strangers on the internet what to do.

You are missing the fact that some of us actually have no family to speak of and our friends live hours away. Life happens hun.

Same here lol. I've never posted something like that, but sometimes people need support at all times of the night. I would imagine if I had to take my kids to the ER at 3am, I wouldn't wake anyone to tell them. I would post on here for support, though. I would tell my RL friends and family at a decent hour unless it was a life or death matter.

You are right. I am so lucky to have a ton of family and friends and forget there are people out there who are doing it all alone. I always try to respond to those kinds of posts because I feel very sorry for the people who start them. And, you are right, the internet is better than nothing.

Maybe they think that since there are a lot of people on this site, someone might know what`s going on orhave experienced the same thing. My family and friends dont know much about health so if I ever needed advice on something like that, I would google it and ask here

I live about 6 hours from family and my friends all live in different countries (military). It's difficult to keep track of what time it is everywhere so I would rather not disturb them sometimes. I wish we had family closer! The friends I do have here all work full time so during the day, it's hard to get ahold of them.

Sometimes, I post anonymous questions on here cause there's no way in hell id ask someone IRL lol.
