Because we are all patients first, including our volunteer Moderators, no one here has the credentials to give you any type of medical advice, and we are not equipped to handle any emergencies.
Ben's Friends is a community of patient-guided support groups. It is not meant to be a source of emergency help. Due to the type of community this is, there are many times that there won't be a Moderator available. The Mods will always respond to messages left for them as soon as they are back on.
