Author Topic: How Do You Do It?

This is addressing the advocates, mostly the ones who are not as experienced as some of the older advocates.

Do you ever have questions about your body and general health and so forth, such as some topics everyone else discusses her and feel to shy to ask about them because maybe you'll think that your advice won't be respected?

I know I'd feel sort of "left out" because I'd feel like I couldn't ask a question about myself and if I did, that people wouldn't take my advice or consider anything I say as fact. Do any of you ever get that way? I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, but I'm just wondering.

By the way, thanks you guys for being so patient with some of us (me) when we have caused chaos and such. You really are very respected.

You have to remember that everyone is still learning. Even the Sexperts. They don't know everything and neither do we, as Advocates. So it's more than okay to ask questions. Sometimes the questions will be posted on the main boards, or sometimes in the Adv. Room or sometimes i'll ask one of the Sexperts when i bump into them on ICQ. I've asked a LOT of questions since i've been an advocate ... And i don't feel weird about it at all. I don't see why anyone would ...

I'd like to think that i give good advice, more than half of it coming out of the articles on the site itself ... If people don't take my advice, that's their problem. I'm here to answer questions the best way i know how, and that's what i'm doing.
