KC and Emmery'sMom, that was my kind of take on it too. I wasn't being unreasonable and saying EVERY WOMAN MUST BREASTFEED EVEN IF SHE HAS HIV NOW!
I was just talking about questioning the idea that breastfeeding with HIV was completely bad or wrong, and that in places where ff would be risky the percentages of deaths of ff vs bf-ing even with HIV needed to be compared. For me it's not even an emotive issue in that I don't have anyone close to me with HIV, it's more of a compassionate issue, and like research about Sunshine = skin cancer versus No sunshine = vitamin D deficiency creating other cancers, something that I think has a lot of research and the answers get clouded by lack of certain knowledge and that we should be asking more questions about.
Right, I wouldn't want to break off a friendship just on that one argument. I was just in a spin about it because it all became so illogical.
I suppose the thing is that whatever the argument had been about isn't even the issue, I was more upset by her way of arguing rather than anything else. She was slamming me down for questioning her supposed 100 percent accurate knowledge, yet she clearly knows very little about breastmilk judging by other questions she had asked me about breastfeeding in the past.
But it did seem like she was in a spin. I've obviously touched a nerve somewhere. Idk, I'm just going to wait on her and see if she gets in contact again and then play it by ear
