The information presented in this blog is biased. All presented form of information is biased. Your government tells you what they want you to hear. Your parents tell you what they want you to hear. So I’ll tell you what I want you to hear. They are based on my limited knowledge and experience derived from my personal battles with this disease, not the doctor’s, not your relatives, not someone whom has not physically endured the pain of steroid withdrawal.
By using this blog, you are agreeing to use your brain to critically assess all the information provided here. You are to read with utmost skepticism, expose any logical fallacies, question the sources and their accuracy, question the assumptions and premises. As the information profile in this blog will be skewed towards my perspective, you are to do your personal research to seek balanced and alternative viewpoints. You are to make your own judgement and decisions based on what you have or have not assimilated from my posts.
I’ll be more than happy to be proved wrong than right. I’ve learnt to quickly accept that I can be wrong and the benefit of this mindset equates to a growth in knowledge as well as openness to new ideas.
I will not take responsibility, nor claim credit should your health improve or get worse based on information on this blog.
My motivations are twofolds:
1) Increase awareness on topical steroid addiction. I believe all valuable information should be widely accessible to those who need it. With good information and knowledge, people can make proper, rational decisions to effect a positive outcome. I’ll try as much as I can to provide the information. Your job is to make the proper, rational decisions.
2) Encourage readers to think critically on all issues. The ability to think logically and critically will be valuable to all aspects of your life. It is a learn-able skill. It takes brain juice and effort. This skill is crucially important because all information presented to us in the world is biased. It takes a critical mind to properly assess the information so as to derive the best positive outcome. The best positive outcome, in the context of this blog, is an improvement to your health condition. The best positive outcome, in the context of your personal life, is an improvement to your personal growth and knowledge.
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Disclaimer: Please do not believe a single thing from this blog. I’m not a doctor qualified to give medical advice. I’ll be way happier to be proved wrong than right. Read my posts with utmost critical skepticism. Do your due diligence on research and make your own weighted judgement and decisions. I will not take responsibility, nor claim credit should your health improve or get worse based on information provided in this blog.
It is important to note that this website does not advocate or encourage readers to be topical steroid-phobic. My opinion is that topical steroid has its useful applications provided they are used appropriately (sparingly, short durations) so that patients do not develop dependence and tolerance to the drug.
