Auntie Reluctantly Admits She Doesn't Know Everything

Dear Auntie Shrew,
I like your site and the way you answer questions.

It made me wonder who does Auntie Shrew consult when she needs advice? I don't mean friends and family (you can't refer us strangers to them!). I mean like specific books, or other web sites, or whatever.

Never Too Much Advice


Dear Never,
Well, aren't you a nosey parker? Still, it's an interesting enough question so Auntie will indulge you.

Although Auntie likes to think most problems can be solved with a healthy dose of common sense, she is aware that some are either too specific or too complex for that approach. Those need either additional research or the advice of a specialist in a particular field. And heavens forbid Auntie should ask any of her own relatives for advice. The very thought makes her scramble about for her chocolate-covered almonds!

Auntie relies on general reference books for questions regarding factual (non-medical) information. The specific book depends, of course, on the specific question. For general medical questions on common ailments, Auntie might share the benefit of her own experience, consult with a physician or possibly a reputable medical Web site. Readers with specific medical questions are referred to an appropriate medical professional, since the last thing Auntie needs is a multi-million dollar lawsuit. The same goes for severe mental health issues. Auntie is in no way a substitute for professional care.

Now is as good a time as any to point out that Auntie's advice is mostly informed opinion acquired through many years of experience. While it might give Auntie's ego a nice boost to think she knows everything, she is too much of a realist to believe that to be so. Like Popeye said, "I yam what I yam. Well, "Auntie knows what she knows." Beyond that, she has enough sense to direct her readers to trained professionals.

Yours shrewdly,
Auntie Shrew

What happens if I miss a dose of Diflucan ? Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and take only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of this medication. A double dose could be dangerous.

! Someone understands how important common sense is. The sad thing is that many people do not understand common sense. Common sense tries to draw attention to my blog by posting on a very popular blog that also seems to be of some quality.
