MB, awww...you go ahead and talk about whatever you want, with whatever vocabulary you want! I was only kidding. Thought it was funny that you quoted yourself and responded. I talk to myself in RL, but I haven't tried it online (yet!).

Pete, this part of one of your posts really struck me:-
We all have the common goal of "Living with PA". The reality is, it isn't always pleasant. I'll admit it. Sometimes dealing with my son's PA causes me frustration. Because of it, my fuse is sometimes shorter than normal.
And, for that reason, I re-raised three threads under Living with PA re stress and PA (one *could* thank one's lucky stars I wasn't asking *new* or *more* questions! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] )
No, it did get me thinking.
jodi2boys, my children don't participate in extracurricular sports so that's why I didn't feel okay about responding.
I know how I feel about my children playing in their litter filled, filthy playground at school, but that's about it.
I hope you're okay. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

LOL. What can I say? It's the combined curse of thinking OL and talking with one's hands. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Your 4 year old program has dugouts???!!! Wow! Our teeball program for the 4-5 year olds is not played on a regular size baseball field...it is a "make-shift" field that doubles as soccer fields/practice field for the 4-5 year old crowd. Our "dugout" it sitting in the grass!LOL!

Hmmmm, well perhaps I should have borrowed MommaBear's dictionary. Darn, I just knew I should have used bigger words!! LOL
Quote:[b]and clearly didn't lend any support to Jodi (isn't that what this board is all about - to give support and provide helpful info?)[/b]
So you think that only one answer would suffice? She shouldn't look at it from another perspective?
So you don't like what I had to say--why--just because I didn't kiss butt and tell her that everything that she is doing is just fine? Oh please, if you thought my comments were that bad, you clearly haven't been in the off topic section yet!! LOL [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Glad to hear that--I wasn't talking about you, though. (btw, you clearly didn't read my previous post to Jodi--had you of read it you would have seen that I wrote:
[b]Had you of posted this in your first post, I wouldn't have thought at all that you were being paranoid--just a typical mom who has a child with pa (just like me)[/b]
Quote:[b]I do not in any way pass on any paranoia to DS and he is a well-rounded, happy child who participates in many activities. BUT.....I do make sure he will be safe before he participates. I'm not sure how anyone could view that as paranoia.[/b]
AGAIN, I wasn't ever talking about you! Since this was previously cleared up, I'm not sure why you want to keep hashing on it.
Quote:[b]I'm just trying to get my message out that everyone should "play nice" on this board and try to be helpful rather than criticize. That is what these boards are for - right?
[/b]
Once again, I did offer helpful advice. It's all a matter on how you take it. [b]That[/b] I cannot help!
Think you need to chill, re-read my posts and perhaps drown your feelings in some chocolate. (Well, atleast that's what a lot of people on this board suggests makes one feel better) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

In my experience, it is not honesty that leads to hurt feelings, but honesty without compassion. And saying that they were just being "honest" is, also in my experience, the final refuge of those who hurt other people's feelings and simply don't care.
There is absolutely no reason you had to use a nasty and judgmental word like "paranoid" if what you really wanted to do was offer advice. There were lots of other ways to get your point across nicely, but you chose to do it in that particular way. You could have said, "Well, there are plenty of ways to keep your son safe without being overprotective. Here's what we do." Jodi2boys was asking a sincere question, and I think you treated her with a distinct lack of respect.
