I am so SORRY you have been attacked in this forum. That sounds so so painful what you experienced. What the people don't understand, is tears like that could have killed you. But I won't go into that as I'm having a hard time now not being horrified at your pain.
Regardless what your reasons are, you were hurt and you advised others. Bottom line.
So you did your part and just leave it as is. I wouldn't bother explaining why you did it, it isn't anyone's business. We all have to be careful what we try because there are implications for everything; even when a Dr. recommends it.
Again, I'm so sorry for your pain and even more sorry for the hurtful comments that were made towards you. Sensitive people are few and rare.
