Thanks for the support. We pretty much agree that although she might/might not be feeling guilty over her decisions, she came at me wayyyy too strong for what I posted. That was all I wanted to find out, if I was out of line for what I wrote, which I didn't think I was (and her bragging about her daughter to make some point, whatever point that was, was pretty ridiculous).
Anyway, after my very long post back to her, the post filled with facts and a couple articles by Dr. Newman, this is how I ended the letter. Just so you all can see, I tried to be very nice and offer help, IF she felt like she ever needed it.
" HER NAME- There was a question posed to the group. I feel like I am part of
this group, at least I hope. I answered it honestly and without any
accusation. I would hope that saying something truthfully and without
accusation would be fine with several adult ladies. Please don't come at me
with a knife being so defensive for something that is so important to our
children and our nations health. You could just as easily of said "hey, nice
to see someone who would give a new parent that type of answer as it's the
truth. I tried to nurse my babies but found I had a very rare condition, to
which their were no other answers. I have made peace with it and thank my
Lord that my children are fine, but I know I would have liked to have nursed
them...." instead of how you 'yelled' across the computer. Anyway, I am
sorry you became so defensive and angry at the simple and honest statement I
made, but I hope you won't be like that in the future to someone else trying
to share their opinion and speak truths. We are all adults here, lets
discuss like adults. If you have any questions, ever, about nursing or
anything related to it, you are more than welcome off -list to write me and
I will be more than happy to get you the info. you want. Honestly, I would
love to help.
So, although I was ticked for how nasty she got, I tried to contain it (for the most part) and let her know she was very offensive, but I would still be here to help if she wanted. Hey, I am human too!
Thanks for reading guys.
