If a person post a question do you always assume its about them? or do you assume it's just a general question?

Since ask is a search engine like Google, I only assume their personal only when the person who asks states so, or personalizes it with terms like I, me, we, he, she, our, and so on. That way I can focus on providing a better answer for the question.

I'm struggling, I had the lower portion of both lungs removed now, so beyound my dependance on oxygen support the hospice care includes pain management, and I'm not tolerating the morphine drip well. No wonder my grandchildren are scared by all of the machinery.

Your in hospice care!?

Hiya Rusty! That s#cks, had hoped the drip would work better!:-(. Not much I can say other than thinking about you and sending you positive thoughts and wishes for strength and more paincontrol!!
Try letting your grandkids push your drip button( not for real of course) but do that and then fake feeling better.. Maybe they'll feel less scared of it?:-).

I never thought of that, I might give it a try, they seem so distant since this all began, maybe this can bring some fun to them while they visit. Thanks witt! ;)

Apple I've been overwhelmed by my cancer, and now I'm receiving hospice care at home. I'm really wanting to make it to another Christmas, but the doctors aren't so positive on their opinions of the matter. Nuff said. Thanks for asking though. I'm really going to miss all who made my study of this site for sociology such an enjoyment. You'll all be missed terribly. I wish I could live forever. That's why I'm leaving so many posts at ask.Maybe my friends and family will get some comfort and insight from them when I'm gone. Again, thanks.

Usually I assume it's about them unless they say otherwise ! Even when they say it's for someone else , I wonder if it's about them and they just don't want to say so !

Great assumption Duke. I really never thought of ask in this fashion.

Usually , most questions are about someone in general , but not always . I still stick to my answer about people questions .

Who's ducke
Report as
Apple : Have no idea what you're talking about ! Duke was John Wayne's nickname !
Report as
rustyboilerz
Since I knew the real John Wayne, I treat Mr.Wayne with the same nickname John used. Since he's never revealed his real name to me, I felt more comfortable calling him Duke. This being the Internet, I value all privacy.
Report as
You knew the real John Wayne? Was he a friend?
Report as
I got to meet him in 70 when he came to Nam ! Got a picture taken with him and a autograph ! He asked me if he could have my Beret for a souvenier and I gladly gave it ! That picture and autograph is in a glass case on my wall ! Here's this big man , standing next to a skinny , dirty 18 year old !
Report as
That's a great story! Now that skinny, dirty 18 year old is a big man too! Love you Bro! <3

My comment went to the mods. The word "dirty" needs to be removed from the computer filter! I keep getting the "oops" message when I refer to dirt as in soil! What a waste of the moderators' time! Those poor gals have enough to do! :)

I met him in Saigon, then remained friends by mail, again meeting him in Colorado shortly before his death. He was truly a great American. No one can ever fill his boots.
Report as
That's wonderful Rusty. Seems everyone who met him felt the same. I never had the pleasure, but I'm glad for you two! Bro, my comments are in review about your meeting. Hopefully they'll come back!
Report as
I agree Rusty ! A great man !
Report as
Aw , thanks Sis ! That made my day !

Did not know you also met the Duke, Rusty. I didn't always agree with his views on the NRA but always respected his conviction and solid personality. Must have been an interesting Man to meet and know!
@Mr Wayne, as thought the Bunk Bed Q got pulled, hope you got my comment about taking Hunter and him having Fun, you getting the benefit of laughter watching him.. Laughter is the best Medicine for me!:-). Hope you manage w/out "regurgatation"(see if that get's tagged..lol!) and laugh alot! O)

I've answered questions assuming it was about the individual because it wasn't specified that it was a general question.. then you called me stupid...now I'm not sure what to do..but I think I will stick with assuming it's about them unless specified otherwise

She has her hard times about her son (like I do) that come and go. But she is sweet . It's just something impossible to get through, especially if it was extremely tragic. She's come a long way. :-)
