Hey Doc,
Don't you ever get tired of answering posts on this forum - doesnt it get boring and tedious at times?
Do you run your own practice as well, if you do, where do you find the energy to volunteer for this service?
P.S. Does Health24 sponsor your ADSL? ;)

To be frank, Tinkerbell, yes it can get boring and tedious at times, especially when one gets almos the identical question many times in a row ( it'd work better if people would use the archives first, and then ask a more specific question about that part of their own situation where pevious discussion hadn't touched on it. I have retired from normal active practice, though I have a number of other acivities ( though in recent months, HEALING has been almost a full-time job !).
Where I find the energy is an interesting question, to which I haven't yet found an interesting answer.
I'm not sure that I should publish my financial accounts ! But no, Health24 dosn't pay my current ADSL account, nor did they pay the previous horrendous dial-up accounts, though they do try to help contribute towards one's costs.
And male23, no, I don't see you as a hijacker, nor need you to greatly back off. Just return to some of your more human, experience-based replies, which you have also most usefully contributed, and be a bit more tactful on the specific biblical references, which not everyone finds helpful to them --- and as you've provided your email address, and it is locatable in the archives, people with religious interests can contact you directly, anyway.
And male23, my comment wasn't only in relation to your response to that specific question, but to a pattern emerging in your responses to many questions, which made a number of readers uneasy. DO feel free to say around, and response as the person you are ; and let the emails take care of specifically biblical questions.
