The internets strike again

Cheryl’s been off the computer for most of the last week due to the pain she’s in when sitting up. But tonight she decided to do a little research on spinal surgery, stopping by a few discussion groups along the way.

Danger, Will Robinson! DANGER!

Predictably, the discussions are filled with horror stories too terrible to repeat on a family web site. I told her the folks who are happy with their surgery are probably getting on with their lives, not spending time obsessing over it with discussion groups. People still talking about it afterwards are more likely to be those unhappy with the results.

I can come up with this kind of bull-shit all day, I just hope it’s true.

Give the gift of words.
