The judging,the thinking that other's are attention seekers,or whiners.
I do not understand this line of thinking as we are all here for the same disease. And in my opinion there is not one person with the disease that hasn't whined,or saught attention because they are down.
Depression is a harsh disease,and we as depressed folks get enough judgement,and " whining opinions" from the outside world.
Why do we do that to each other in here?
There should be a place for everyone to come and not feel judged,or having to second guess your thoughts when you are at your lowest for fear of someone thinking you are whining or seeking attention.

There I have vented my frustration.

I've been using this site off and on for about a year and have noticed the same thing. I try not to judge people and to be encouraging to them.

I am sorry that you have been made to feel this way.  Healing Well is meant to be a safe place for everyone to be able to voice their opinions and feelings without fear criticism.  I do try to support everyone and have the up most concern for peoples thoughts and feelings and how they may react to what I may say.  If there is someone that you or another person on this forum notices that is being disruptive and insulting please notify one of the moderators or you can notify Peter of this behavior.

No worries Elisha,you and all of the moderators do a great job
The things that I have seen myself are just people I think that are down and seem to lash out at others
I have just decided to not even read the posts that I think might be a problem.
