Well the way I look at it if someone feels the need to go on an aging care forum and make up a story because they need some kind of attention thats more sad than anything else.

What happens with me is that I truly worry about the person posting an issue with urgency and desperation, and days go by and no reply.
I try to get practical useful and quick answers to posts that
I am reading.
Like with everything else, "taking it with a grain of salt".

I agree Jeanne. Lets assume everyone is telling the truth until proven they are not. Otherwise whats the point of this forum when you think about it.

Wow, you guys sure are suspicious. Why would you assume that someone who can't get up and down stairs to do her own laundry can't have a witty sense of humor? A person who can't get a meal together can't type on a computer?

I recall how useless I felt when I had undiagnosed diabetes. I had a neighbor go to the store for me to pick up something ready-made that I could eat. I could barely get dressed. Walking any distance was a challenge. But I could still type on the computer and kept interested people updated on my health.

So I don't automatically assume a person having extreme health problems loses her ability to type coherently and must necessarily have her grammar and wit dessert her.

Ok, maybe this is a hoax, spoof, troll -- not genuine post. Maybe. But I think it would be a lot better to take posts seriously and answer sincerely. Even if the poster isn't genuine there might be someone else who would benefit for serious replies.

I just don't have time for troll-detecting. I'll take posts at face value. I don't worry about looking foolish.

Mulata88, I was wondering how someone who can't take care of themselves, such as feeding, taking meds, etc. can type on a computer/Smartphone with no problems, excellent grammar, etc. And have a sense of humor with the screen name :)

I don't know if this person was pretending to be the patient or not. We have seen similar postings like this a couple of months ago.

Hope Daisy can come back to clarify.
