I got an interesting e-mail today from Jeanine who had this to say:
How many people have to tell you that Lysine works. You seem to be very knowlegable in pharmaceutical meds. So, I believe You do work for Big Pharma in disquise trying to convince people otherwise. Those who know better than you, know that they will be better off without your information.
A lot of people have told me that L-lysine works for them. However, twice as many people have also told me that L-lysine doesn’t work for them at all. I happen to be one of those people that tried L-lysine and it did absolutely nothing for my herpes outbreaks.
I do not work for anybody at this time. In fact, I am a stay-at-home mother of three beautiful girls. I’ve got my hands full taking care of them and even when I did hold a job, I did not work for any pharmaceutical companies – EVER.
Just because I tell somebody that taking L-lysine didn’t work for me doesn’t mean that I am working for the drug companies. I am entitled to tell you what I know and share what has OR has not worked for me. Am I not entitled to share my own experiences? You have to realize at some point that no two experiences are alike. There are so many factors that go into why stuff may or may not work for some people.
The rest of the note was just plain old mean and rude. I don’t really have anything to say about those rude remarks that were sent my way.
