mad  So, I was chatting on the Healing Well chat.
I ran across someone who encouraged me to share my problems, so I did.
This person proceeded to tell me that my problem was nothing to get depressed over.
So I called this person on it, and instead of apologizing, they just quit the chat.
I'm more upset about this that I probably should be ... but ugh! how could someone be so rude?
I'm so glad all of you are much more supportive than this lunatic :)

Don't be concerned about that.  There are so many different personalities out there.  You did nothing wrong.  If they wanted to leave the chat then that was their choice and, actually, it probably was for the best.

I am sorry we have problems with getting some people banned (repeated rule breakers) from chat.   I have pretty good idea of who you are talking about and would appriciate if you would email me ( ) their member name.  But just be careful who share with, not all are compassionate and supportive people.  In fact some have responded to be ill, by become more nasty and mean.  It is not right, so just be a bit careful.  Unfortunately, with not having an entrance where everyone hangs out, people go where people are.

Im sorry that happened! It sure makes it hard to just have to know that they are in a very different place than you... and be glad for it! You can surround yourself with people who support and care about you. Its good you stood up for yourself without it turning into a big thing.

Try to shake it off, you know WE dont bite! :-)

yup ... could we maybe get a General chat room put in?
I know that I like to offer support to everyone, even if we don't have the same problem. I think the way the forums are organized now kinda encourages people to hang out all alone ... which is pretty boring :)
I've sent Family Guy a message about the problem. You can look under my post in Depression ... the offending member made a reply :)
I also chatted with a couple of very nice people afterwards ... so my view of the forum isn't all shattered.

Unfortunately, they walk among us. Pain is a subjective thing. What bothers one may not bother another. There is no excuse for someone trying to tell you, me, or anyone else, that you shouldn't be depressed. Fortunately, there are some super people who use this forum. Surely you had a doctor or two tell you fibro all in your head. BS! We know fibro hurts everywhere but your head.

Actually I had a really great rheumy who tested for and ticked a number of conditions off his list before diagnoxing me with Fibro. My main fear when I started having problems was that I was going to end up with Ankylosing Spondilitis which runs in my family :D
