I don't mean to insult anyone, but this connect.mayoclinic.org area is great, except for one thing: there are no licensed health care professionals in here to answer questions. So, people just relay their opinions back and forth, and although it's great to have people to talk to…….this is why I prefer a basic chat room setting, because people are more likely to also discuss non-health care issues just to take a break from their health-related stress. The Connect Moderators seem very nice, but as far as I know, they are not licensed LPN's or even nurse's aides, are they?

Hello @usernameca You are correct in that Connect is a patient-to-patient, layperson's place to share experiences, ask about others' experiences, suggestions, hints, and tips. It is not designed as a platform for medical professionals to give medical advice, but as a place to share. I think as you watch and read more and more posts you might find that lots of folks here share many aspects of their lives. That is what brought me to Connect years ago at least.

Great to have you here and to read your point of view!

@usernameca Why I like mayo connect. Everyday people understand and for the most part congenial and do not think they are superior because they have some kind of license. The members here are kind and caring which once rarely find in the professional role where it is their trade.
