Serenity, not everyone unfairly/aggressively judges people seeking help. I, like db, must take care to approach my patients without judgement or bias, or else I will never be able to truly help them. I see time and time again, on forums where people have anonymity, that there are always those few dispense with basic courtesy and respect. (If anyone is offended by this, the question then is, why? - unless it applies to you) Don't let them bother you; they are not important. You, and your horse, are.
Take the information that is helpful, which has been offered from knowledgeable people, and disregard the rest. You'll find many here are very motivated to offer sincere assistance.
The health and welfare of your mare is the priority here, and there's been quite a few great points made. Making a list for the Vet is a great idea, as we always forget to ask "the doctor" when he'she is present, whether it's a human or equine patient. Good luck with your girl and keep us informed. :)
