I was pleased to see on the board, someone that was working with Dr.
Shoemaker. I have spent countless hours discussing health related
issues with Dr. Shoemaker. I've never recieved a bill, and think it is
safe to say, if he is rich, and I hope he is, he did not get there by
trying to help people.
I gave johncodie the telephone number for Dr. Shoemaker, but doubt that
he called, it's not his style. He had rather whine and immerse himself
in the board, than to get off his verbal _ _ _ and do something, at
least in my opinion. If he did call, I doubt he used the name
johncodie. You know, I don't have any idea who this guy really is, do
you? For all I know he could be Elliot, Mary, CJ, Tricho, and others
all wrapped into one?
You know, I feel that litigants have an obligation to mediate the
damages, to find help, solutions if they can, rather than to prolong
their troubles in a quest for sympathy and recognition by incessant
posting and criticism of all.
