I don't think Maxime was serious Sarah T.

I very much doubt that Maxime was serious about asking Phillipa to lend her that money. I'm pretty sure that she was making a point that she didn't have anyone she could ask, since Phillipa had suggested that she borrow money for her prescriptions.

I agree that Phillipa is a very nice person here, and genuinely cares enough that she would lend money if asked. But I think that Maxime is about the last person here to take advantage of Phillipa especially, or anyone else for that matter.

Maxime has been going through some really rough times, and it's hard for people who haven't experienced that sort of problem to understand fully just how hard it can be. Before finding out about the compassion programs -- and before finding a county doctor willing to sign the dang forms for it -- I went through periods of intensely painful withdrawal from Effexor simply because I couldn't afford the drugs. Imagine living through total hell? Vomitting and crying from the pain? All because I couldn't afford the medications I needed? That's pretty well where Maxime is now, only in Canada where the health system is a little different from here.

You know, I know that you are looking out for Phillipa, which is very sweet -- it's one of the best things about this site, that we do look out for one another. I'm just looking out for Maxime, because I really think she was kidding about it. I hope you can understand, and won't think badly about the people here -- particularly Maxime, who needs all the support we can offer here.
