Since my bout with cellulitis, I searched online for a place to share my experience, and ended up posting on a website called patient(.)com. I made one post detailing what happened to me, and how I fixed it, and then made a few supportive comments on someone else’s post. I was banned from the site 5 days after I signed up. Without warning.
I e-mailed them to ask why, and was curtly informed that I was endangering people’s health. I didn’t tell anyone to go off their meds: I just suggested adding ascorbic acid to what they were doing. I guess that was too radical. (Yes, I did just roll my eyes.)
Sooooo, then I searched Facebook for a cellulitis group: what I found was horrifying. In a way, I should have seen this coming, because with all my UTI experience, I know how antibiotics destroy the gut biome and lead to recurring infections. Still, it was shocking.
