6. Keep in mind that we are all here to simply discuss our experiences with Hughes/APS. We are not here to give out medical advice to others. Different treatments from your own will likely be discussed. Please remember to contact your medical provider to discuss any treatment options before undertaking them yourself.


7. Alternative/Holistic therapies are welcomed to be discussed. However, since many of them are not proven by the medical community to be effective, please do not try to unnecessarily raise hopes regarding them.


8. Feel free to upload your stories or photos. Please try to limit the size of photos by using thumbnails or link to an off site photo gallery to save space.


9. No chain letters, spam, or advertising within the forum.
